This show will be hosted by Debbie Coffey, V.P. of Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
Our guests tonight are Keith Nakatani, California Oil & Gas Program Manager, and Matt Davis, California Communications Director, of Clean Water Action. Clean Water Action is a national organization, founded in 1972, that has over one million members nationwide.
Keith and Matt will talk about: *fracking wastewater being used to irrigate crops, * the Aquifer Exemption program in the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) and the Underground Injection Control (UIC) program that allows certain oil and gas and mining activity to occur in groundwater that would otherwise be protected as a drinking water source, * and much more.
"The Aquifer Exemption program allows injection directly into once protected aquifers and essentially 'writes off' potential groundwater sources."
Clean Water Action empowers people to take action to protect water resources, build healthy communities, and make democracy work. Visit them at www.cleanwateraction.org and follow us on Twitter at @cleanh2oaction.
