40 REASONS TO VOTE NO ON MEASURE O – SINGLE PAGE

40-reasons-to-vote-no

WE CANNOT WIN WITHOUT YOUR VOTE!

“VOTE NO ON MEASURE O” – MARCH 3RD!

REASON #1

BAD DEAL FOR HERMOSA BEACH!

 

bad-deal-hermosa-beach

Oil Drilling is a Bad Deal for Hermosa Beach

 

75% of Oil Revenue Cannot be Spent

State law prohibits Hermosa Beach from spending 75% of the proposed oil revenue on city services and infrastructure, police and fire, under grounding of utilities, education, salaries and benefits.

 

Hermosa Beach Property Values Could Drop Significantly

Hermosa homeowners could lose tens of millions of dollars in property values if we allow oil drilling on March 3rd. Lower property values also reduce revenue for city services and public safety.

 

Only 20 Cents per Barrel of Oil

There’s no guarantee schools will receive anything more than mineral rights and 20 cents per barrel of oil – that is less than 1% of our school’s annual budget.

 

Dropping Oil Prices = Less Oil Revenue

Dropping oil prices will only lower oil revenue for Hermosa Beach. But, the dangerous and unhealthy affects of oil drilling will not be reduced. This deal is not worth the risk.

 

Hermosa Beach is Financially Strong!

“The city of Hermosa Beach has a budget surplus and has never been threatened by bankruptcy. We can afford to pay the settlement and keep oil drilling out of our community. We have nearly half the money already set aside. We don’t need to become an oil company town to pay our bills or fund our city services.”

– Hermosa Beach Mayor Peter Tucker

REASON #2

FRIVOLOUS LAWSUIT!

 

raymond-dussault-lawsuit

Facts the Oil Company does not want you to know.

Argument Against Measure O

• Vote NO on O to keep oil drilling out of Hermosa Beach.

• Vote NO on O to preserve our health, safety and quality of life.

Oil drilling will be unsafe, unhealthy, and a bad deal for Hermosa Beach. If permitted, it could mean years of construction and operation of 30 oil and gas wells, 4 injection wells, large storage tanks, and miles of dangerous underground pipelines that will threaten our quality of life and our health.

The project will involve a drilling rig nearly nine stories high and thousands of miles of air-polluting heavy truck traffic through neighborhood streets, along the Green Belt and the city-recommended safe route to school. For 30 years, the project will regularly employ a 110-foot-tall workover rig in operations that will bring unhealthy odors, flares, noise and light pollution, and the ever-present risks of gas, oil, and chemical spills, fires, and explosions.

The official Environmental Impact Report identifies nine “significant unavoidable impacts” including increased air pollution that will exceed air quality thresholds. The air pollutants and dozens of toxic chemicals used during the project’s construction and operaon have been linked to increased heart attacks, asthma, and cancer. These health impacts will fall heaviest on children and the elderly.

We cannot trust this oil company to protect us. They have a history of oil spills and have recently been fined for illegally dumping contaminated wastewater. They currently face a lawsuit that claims they polluted groundwater causing crops to fail.

A major accident, such as the uncontrolled release of crude oil or natural gas, called a blowout, could result in loss of life, extensive property damage, evacuations, long-term health impacts, and degradation of our beach environment.
We cannot afford to take these risks.

REASON #3

OIL DRILLING WILL PUT HERMOSA BEACH SENIORS’ HEALTH AT RISK!

 

oil-drilling-senior-health

 

Increased Air Pollution

The oil and natural gas project will push Hermosa Beach air pollution well over local and federal air quality standards. Higher levels of air pollution are linked to an increase in heart and lung diseases.

Lower Quality of Life

More hospitalizations, sleep disorders and cognitive decline are associated with the environmental impacts caused by the oil project. Environmental stress will accelerate the effects of aging and will lower the quality of life for seniors.

Seniors and Children Will Be Most at Risk

According to the official Health Impact Assessment, seniors and children will be at increased risk from air quality impacts. This means 25% of Hermosa’s population will be more vulnerable to cardiopulmonary diseases and cancer including childhood leukemia.

Numerous Side Effects

Headaches, nasal congestion, eye, nose and throat irritation, hoarseness, sore throat, cough, chest tightness, shortness of breath, wheezing, heart tremors (palpitations), nausea, drowsiness, depression and higher stress levels are the most commonly reported symptoms associated with the environmental impacts that can be caused by oil and gas drilling in Hermosa Beach.

Equinox Oil Spill

In September 1998, a predawn blowout of a well owned by Equinox Oil, a firm Steve Layton (Current President of E&B) founded and operated, led to the discharge of nearly 1,500 barrels of crude oil into waters near the Louisiana coast.

A geyser of oil and sand erupted 300 feet into the sky for 11 hours, and several thousand acres of coastal waters were coated in slicks. About 1,233 acres of wetlands were exposed to oil, according to case documents from the state of Louisiana and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration.

Equinox Oil Declares Bankruptcy Under Steve Layton's Watch

In September 1998, a blow out occurred at a well on an Alma lease near Port Sulfur, Louisiana. The blow out caused property damage and an oil spill. Equinox notified its insurer, National Union Fire Insurance Company of the accident. Numerous companies provided services and equipment to Equinox to stop the blowout and clean up the spill. Equinox presented a proof of loss form to National Union.

In May 1999, Equinox was placed in involuntary bankruptcy under Chapter 7, which Equinox converted to Chapter 11.

E&B brushed aside concerns that their public record of spills—most recently 2,000 gallons of “red diesel” in an oil field in unincorporated Kern County in February 2012—contradicts public statements concerning the possibility of a spill in Hermosa Beach.

“You would not trust an oil company who did not have a number of spills reported,” says Tiffany Rau, “because that means they’re not reporting.”

HERMOSA BEACH WILL NOT GO BANKRUPT!

 

REASON #6

E&B NATURAL RESOUCRES IS A BAD COMPANY!

 

EB-Bad-Company

 Oil Men with a Bad Record

 

A Record of Oil Spills

Over the past 17 years, the oil men who want to drill in Hermosa Beach have been responsible for numerous oil spills. One spill alone involved some 63,000 gallons of oil. But, oil is not all they spill. Thousands of gallons of diesel and waste water have also been spilled or illegally dumped.

A History of Bankruptcy

When things go wrong, these oil men declare bankruptcy and are gone. Seventeen years ago, a project under the current president of E&B Natural Resources had a blowout where a massive amount of oil spilled along the Louisiana coast. They could not afford to pay for all the cleanup, so they filed for bankruptcy and got out.

Destructive to Communities

These oil men have left destruction in their wake. Whether it’s spilling oil over thousands of acres of coast waters and wetlands or being sued for groundwater contamination linked to killing local crops, this is not the kind of company we want in our community.

Oil Drilling  Will Put Children at Increased Risk

 

Higher Risk of Asthma

Children will be at higher risk for Asthma and other lung-related diseases. They are also more likely to develop chronic eye, nose and throat irritation. [Health Impact Assessment (HIA), p. 43]

Learning Impairments

Children will be at greater risks from noise and light pollution. The ability to learn, including the early development of language skills in infants, is impaired by the kinds of environmental impacts oil drilling will bring. More hospital visits for children will also impair the learning process. [Health Impact Assessment, pp.48, 80]

A Less Safe Environment

Heavy truck traffic will put children at greater risk of injury and death. Young children will also have greater exposure to pollutants found in soil, water and air. [Health Impact Assessment, pp.71, 118]

REASON #10

E&B NATURAL RESOURCES CAUGHT EXAGGERATING MONEY FOR THE CITY!

  • According to documents submitted by E&B Natural Resources on July 15, 2014, “Approximately 400 barrels of formation water and crude oil were discharged into an unlined sump.”

 

  • settlement agreement was signed by E&B Natural Resources’s Mike Finch on September 22, 2014 including a penalty of close to $40,000.

 

REASON #12

E&B NATURAL RESOURCES SUED OVER GROUNDWATER CONTAMINATION!

 

g30e2200000000000005d3ed6642bf31fe43ad7fc0ca12ea5b116adc183

E&B Natural Resources, the oil company seeking the voter’s approval on March 3, 2015 to drill oil in Hermosa Beach, is being sued for groundwater contamination and the loss of food crops in Kern County California.  See the full story here.

  • E&B Natural Resources Management Corp. is named in a lawsuit filed Monday in Kern County Superior Court by plaintiff Palla Farms LLC claiming they had to uproot a large number — possibly hundreds — of cherry trees because of alleged negligence on the part of E & B and three other oil and gas drilling companies

 

  • The suit claims the four oil production companies raised salt and boron levels in local groundwater during high-pressure injection of “some or all” of three oil field waste materials. These are “produced water,” the saline fluid that comes out of the ground along with oil; drilling mud used to carry away cuttings or provide lubrication during drilling

 

  • The lawsuit also says the oil companies neglected to conduct a review to make sure there were no idle water wells nearby

 

  • The four companies also failed to provide fluid treatment plans, chemical analyses of liquid being injected or geological studies, all of which the suit says are required by law

 

  • The lawsuit said the defendants knew or should have known their actions may have caused harm because of a 2011 U.S. Environmental Protection Agency audit finding California injection well operations were not up to federal groundwater protection standards.

REASON #13

HEALTH HAZARDS!

 

oil-warning-signs-on-fence

Nearly 50 percent of the city’s residents live (and breathe) within 0.5 miles of the proposed drilling site.

Air pollution will be released at all stages of oil and gas operations for the life of the project, spewing dangerous pollutants into the air including benzene, formaldehyde, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs including naphthalene), acetaldehyde, acrolein, propylene, toluene, xylenes, ethyl benzene, and hexane.

Increases in asthma attacks, bronchitis (emphysema), heart attacks, heart failure, headaches, and cardiac arrhythmia can likely be expected along with increased hospital admissions and emergency room visits.

REASON #14

RUINING OUR COMMUNITY!

 

ruining-our-community

Thirty oil wells, four wastewater reinjection wells, storage tanks, and waste treatment facilities will be built on a 1.3 acre lot adjacent to a residential neighborhood, small businesses, a pedestrian greenbelt, and a children’s playground. Miles of underground pipelines will extend out under a larger portion of the community. The project is proposed to last 35 years with five years just for construction.

The drilling project will feature:

  • A large drilling rig, projected to be 110 feet tall, that will be visible to the entire community.
  • Heavy truck traffic on Valley Drive that will impact roads, greenbelt activities, and pedestrians, especially our children walking to school.
  • Constant noise and light from construction, creating an unnecessary nuisance to residents.
  • An increase in noise, noxious odors, and air pollution.
  • Drilling 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for 35 years.

 

The project requires relocating the city yard to a small lot adjacent to a residential neighborhood at 12th and Valley Drive at significant cost ($10 million to $18 million) and loss of income ($180,000 per year) and parking to the city.

HERMOSA BEACH CAN PAY THE SETTLEMENT!

 

the-gusher-card-table

Hermosa Beach is financially sound with $80 million in assets, no debt, and more than $6 million already set aside to cover the settlement cost. Among other options, the remaining settlement balance of approximately $11 million can be paid off under

“… commercially reasonable terms to be mutually agreed upon by the city and E&B.”

A recent Easy Reader article also notes that the city’s own Community Dialogue issued a report that found 

“Hermosa will not go bankrupt if the voters fail to approve oil drilling.”

Inflated oil revenue projections are based on reports paid for by E&B. In fact, more than 70 percent of the projected oil and gas resides offshore. Revenue derived from offshore oil is highly regulated by the State Tidelands Trust, which severely restricts how it may be spent.

The presence of an oil and gas drilling operation and pipeline will lower property values, which, in turn, will decrease taxes and revenues to the city.

Saturday, May 17; Stop Hermosa Beach Oil joined forces with Heal the Bay and The Surfrider Foundation to host a beach clean up and rally against drilling for oil and gas off shore in Hermosa Beach. The event was timed to immediately precede participation in the worldwide event known as Hands Across the Sand. After cleaning the beach, over 600 volunteers, comprised of friends, neighbors and community members from Hermosa and beyond were joined by Hermosa Beach Council Members Hany Fangary and Nanette Barragan, Hermosa Beach School Board Member Mary Campbell, State Senate Candidate Betsy Butler, Congressional hopeful Marianne Williamson  and representatives from team Muratsuchi. The spirited rally against oil drilling off of our shores then joined hands to form a continuous line, south of the 10th Street Lifeguard Tower, to north of The Mermaid. The Hermosa Beach event was one of the largest gatherings of the day for the Worldwide Hands Across the Sand movement. Stop Hermosa Beach Oil would like to thank all of the organizations, the community and its members for their support in this pivotal event. A special thanks to John Wayne Miller who was on hand to photograph the event by helicopter, see above photo.

E&B NATURAL RESOURCES DELAYED THE VOTE!

 

page1image392Hermosa Beach, California – Stop Hermosa Beach Oil, the citizen’s group working to keep oil drilling out of Hermosa Beach, responds to the postponement of the election on the oil issue from November 4th 2014, to March 3rd 2015. The delay tactics used by E&B Oil Company are clearly designed to wear down residents and disenfranchise voters.  In a special Hermosa Beach election, there are as many as 4,000 fewer votes than in a general election.

Oil drilling in Hermosa Beach will affect our whole city, and that’s why it is so important that every voter has a say. Stacey Armato, Chairperson of Stop Hermosa Beach Oil, said “Hermosa Beach residents are disappointed over the election delay.

Over the past year, we’ve heard from thousands of residents. Many of them have been dealing with the oil issue for years and they were looking forward to a vote in November, long promised by the oil company. We’re glad the City Council was able to negotiate the March election date, since the oil company was pushing for June of next year…” “Under the fear of yet another lawsuit from the oil company, the city council was pressured to postpone the election we were all planning on.

Let this be a lesson to everyone, this is what we can expect from the oil company for years to come.  We need to vote the oil project down and get our city back,” said Dr. Michael Collins, Doctor of Psychology and Hermosa Beach Resident. Stop Hermosa Beach Oil asks residents opposed to oil drilling to stay motivated. We will continue to organize for the March election with the resolve to keep oil drilling out of Hermosa Beach. Stop Hermosa Beach Oil is a group of Hermosa Beach neighbors and friends concerned about oil drilling in Hermosa Beach.  We have formed a political action committee to keep our city from overturning its long-standing ban on oil drilling.

We are united under the banner “Keep Hermosa hermosa,” and our mission is to keep Hermosa clean, green, safe, and beautiful by maintaining the city’s ban on oil drilling originally adopted by the voters in 1932.

The Banner Still Waves

One of the very first meetings of Stop Hermosa Beach Oil -Keep Hermosa Hermosa included a conversation about reaching out to former champions of stopping oil in Hermosa Beach. One of the most recent stewards, and quite possibly the man closest to the action, was M Charles FoggStacey Armato and I took Gavin Rubin to our meeting with MCF, because Gavin had struck up a friendship with Fogg via Facebook. Two peas in a pod, those guys.

We didn’t know at the time of asking for the meeting that Fogg was in the middle of an ongoing battle with cancer. We met at a local restaurant, and Charles showed up fresh pressed, with pressing questions. If you have ever been inside his home, you quickly realize that the fresh air that rides the prevailing winds, is what was helping breathe life into Charle’s lungs. The combination of having previously beaten back an oil drilling threat, and then watching the deal come undone, upset Charles, and he was famous for saying, “those two guys snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.”

“Challenge their false choice. It is not taxes or oil. Challenge their attempts to claim they know more than our elected representatives about the city budgets. Don’t let them insert their claims of oil revenue into city budgets just so they can “rescue” us. Challenge their revenue estimates; this is really a bad deal when examined closely.”
— M. Charles Fogg

Charles was an early donor to Keep Hermosa Hermosa, but his help came with the caveat that he wanted in. Charles wanted to know what we were up to. It must have driven him mad sitting up in that house, not being able to have his boots on the ground. He helped tremendously though…his words, his watchful eye, his ability to keep our feet to the fire.

“e$B consistently pretends drilling doesn’t exist. This is their vulnerability..”
–M. Charles Fogg

As things heated up, the cards got closer to the chest. I used to keep MCF in the loop, either by messages, or a few occasions where I would make an excuse to go straighten up his banner. He loved getting insider information and I know that he finally started to believe me that we might just be able to get victory back from those defeated jaws…He knew about the 1000 banners. He knew about the coming yard signs, voter drives, successful fundraising, and the growing tide of support in this community.

Charle’s wife posted that he died peacefully at the end of January.

I am super bummed that Fogg passed away before the March 03 election. I’m at ease for him, because I know that he is at Peace, but selfishly, selfishly I was really looking forward to walking into his house and saying, “We did it Fogg…We got your victory back.”

OUR MISSION!

Stop Hermosa Beach Oil’s mission is to keep Hermosa clean, green, safe, and beautiful by maintaining the City’s ban on oil drilling originally adopted by the voters in 1932.

Hermosa Beach is a classic California beach town with a rich and colorful history that proudly dubs itself “the best little beach city” in America. In 2011, our 1.3 square mile city formally embarked on a path toward environmental sustainability when we adopted the Green Task Force Sustainability Plan. That bold yet achievable vision for our future stands in stark contrast to our current pressing reality–an oil company proposing to construct 30 oil wells and four injection wells, drilling beneath any land within our City limit and one mile out into the ocean.

Stop Hermosa Beach Oil began as a group of concerned residents, small business owners, professionals, and former council members. What started out as a determination to care for and protect our community, environment and Pacific Ocean, has flourished into a beautiful movement. We are committed to providing our community with plain facts, not spin, to enable the citizens of Hermosa Beach to accurately and fairly judge the environmental, economic, and social impact of the oil company’s proposition.  We seek to foster an open and honest dialogue about the near and long-term future of our beautiful beach community.

A few facts: The proposed drill site is located four blocks from the beach on Valley Drive, surrounded by family homes, small businesses, beautiful South Park and our iconic Green Belt. From this site, the oil company seeks to drill, produce, and process up to 8,000 barrels of oil and 2.5 million cubic feet of natural gas per day. The company plans to directionally drill in all directions under homes and below the sea floor to the one-mile boundary of tideland that the City holds in trust for the benefit of the People of California. The oil company’s proposition is, essentially, to plant an “offshore” oil rig four blocks inland from the beach.

Our website provides well-researched information, citing source documents, which we view as fundamental to helping our community reach a well-informed and educated decision about the prospect of drilling in Hermosa Beach.

It is our belief that the City’s ban on oil drilling, which voters studied and wisely adopted in 1932, 1958, and once again in 1995, and which the California Court of Appeals unanimously upheld in 2001, remains our best assurance to secure the welfare of our community and avoid the grave risks inherent in any oil drilling operation.

Please join us in taking a stand against the short-sighted and flawed plan that proposes oil drilling in “the best little beach city.”  We are capable of so much more!  Let’s unite around a future that is green, clean, safe, and beautiful—Together, we will Keep Hermosa Hermosa!

REASON #31

A POTENTIAL HUGE SETBACK!

E&B’s proposal to drill 30 oil and gas wells and four wastewater injection wells on the 1.3-acre site (roughly 240 feet by 240 feet) currently occupied by the Hermosa Beach City Yard is too dangerous due to the lack of a setback sufficient to protect the lives and properties of the city’s residents.

What Does the Term “Setback” Mean?

“Setback” is the term used in law to define the minimum distance between an oil or gas well and surrounding homes, business, schools, parks, and public roads. It is arguably the most basic safety requirement imposed by law on the oil extraction industry.

Why is a Setback Requirement Important?

Oil and gas wells are inherently dangerous. Although the likelihood of a leak, spill, fire, or explosion arguably may be small, the consequences of an equipment failure or simple human error can be enormous. For example, on February 11, 2014, a gas well owned by Chevron in Greene County, Pennsylvania, caught fire and exploded, reportedly due to a broken bolt in the wellhead. The resulting fire burned for five days and was so hot that firefighters could not get closer than 100 yards and had to call in the Wild Well Control Team from Houston, Texas, to put it out. One worker was killed, but no homes were destroyed for one simple reason: there was at least a one-half mile setback between the well and any homes.

How Close to Homes and Businesses Would E&B’s Wells Be?

E & B’s plans show that its wells would be built within 200 feet or less of existing business, homes, and streets. According to the draft Environmental Impact Report, the site is “within 100 feet of businesses, 160 feet of residences, 55 feet of the Greenbelt and 20 feet of the public sidewalks.” Approximately half of the City of Hermosa Beach is within 1500 feet of the proposed well site.

What’s the Setback Requirement in Other Jurisdictions?

In December 2013, the City of Dallas, Texas, increased its minimum setback from 350 feet to 1,500 feet. Similarly, in 2013 Colorado increased the minimum setback in that state from 350 feet to 500 feet. Setback requirements in other jurisdictions: Maryland, 1,000 feet; North Dakota, 500 feet; West Virginia, 625 feet; Santa Fe, New Mexico, 750 feet; Arlington, Texas, 600 feet; Fort Worth, Texas, 600 feet; and Ventura County, California, 500 feet.

How Can E&B Get Away with Having Virtually No Setback for its Wells?

California law is extremely weak. Public Resources Code § 3600 provides that any well within 100 feet of an outer boundary of the property on which it is situated, within 100 feet of a public street, or within 150 feet of another well “is a public nuisance.” In § 3602 it says that where a property is less than 250 feet in width, only one well may be drilled. Because the city yard is less than 250 feet in width, this law would allow only a single well to be drilled on the site. However, § 3605 says that even this weak law does not apply if there was a well operating on the property in 1931, and there was a oil well on the site of the City Yard from 1930 until about 1980. The fact that something is legal, however, does not make it wise or safe.

        THE PROPOSED OIL PROJECT IS TOO DANGEROUS TO BUILD IN THE MIDDLE

            OF ONE OF THE MOST DENSELY POPULATED CITES IN THE COUNTRY.
