SLO Clean Water is an all volunteer community grassroots organization that is dedicated to the prevention of unconventional, enhanced, exempted, dirty, ugly, smelly, toxic, oil extraction process in SLO County that uses billions of gallons of water to manufacture a toxic waste that is being illegally and unlawfully dumped on site.
Enhanced oil extraction uses billions of gallons of water we don’t have and instantaneous renders it a hazardous waste with chemicals known to the State to cause cancer. Freeport McMoRan is dumping hazardous waste to include, benzene, toulene, hydrogen sulfide, radioactive isotopes into the sub soil where it can and will come in contact with other underground water sources. This threat will destroy San Luis Obispo’s tourist and agriculture business which is over 2 billion dollars a year.
It is our duty and responsibility to insure the safety, health and well being of residents, home owners, businesses and visitors totally dependent on a thriving life supporting eco system by insisting our elected officials immediately impose, without exception, a ban on all entities exempted from the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Safe Drinking Water Act, Superfund Act and Community-Right-to-Know Act, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, Superfund, National Environmental Policy Act. To ban extraction of all water used for the manufacture of a toxic waste and the prohibition of all dumping of that waste on site without approved, accredited, validated, waste site disposal certification.
We will do this by reminding our Board of Supervisors their sworn duty to uphold the State mandated emergency water reduction and Countywide emergency mandate to reduce water and upon their oath of office to keep SLO safe, healthy, economically and ecologically sound.
We will join hundreds of other communities in California, other States, other countries that have also found it in their best interest and well being to prevent the suffocating air emissions, earthquakes, contaminated ground water, explosions, fires and spills by prohibiting dirty, deadly, archaic oil extraction in their communities.
We will not be deterred, threatened or intimidated on our quest to protect and preserve our water, air and land for ourselves and all those that will inherit the good earth we are willing them today.
