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!
