in North Orange County

Titan Student Union at Cal State Fullerton
Open to the Public - Free admission and Free parking
The purpose of this Symposium is to provide local policy makers and the public objective, impartial information about the environmental impact of oil extraction in north Orange County. Our goal is to secure an informed and impartial panel to provide policy makers and the public with access to experts in the field who will be able to speak to what is happening in our communities and how it may impact local groundwater, air quality, and earthquakes.
The Symposium will feature experts in the fields of seismology, hydrogeology, air quality, and environmental geology who will speak to the potential impact of oil pumping – including fracking – on our groundwater, earthquake hazard, and water quality. Representatives of the local oil industry will also present information about ongoing oil drilling in north Orange County. Finally, representatives of the California Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Energy Resources – the government entity responsible for overseeing oil production in California – will be on hand to discuss regulatory and policy aspects of oil drilling.
