COMMUNITY MEETING ABOUT HYDRAULIC FRACTURING (FRACKING) IN ST. TAMMANY PARISH!
Join Concerned Citizens of St. Tammany for a discussion about preventing fracking in our Parish and how YOU can help!
Hydraulic fracturing, known as “fracking” involves pumping high pressured water along with a number of chemicals into the ground to fracture the rock below and bring up any oil and gas. This has been associated with many problems, including: drops in housing and property values, loss of local businesses and jobs and water and air pollution.
We’ll be talking with soon-to-be lawyers from Loyola Law School who have been working for months to figure out new ways to stop fracking in St. Tammany. Come learn about our existing laws and how we can use them – or change them – to help us win!
There will be a short presentation on the new proposed strategies, a discussion on how we all can get involved and then a question and answer session with the students and their professor, a long time environmental attorney.
CCST then will present a segment on “Frackonomics.” The economics on fracking!
