Just this week E&B Natural Resources, the oil company that is proposing to drill for oil and gas in Hermosa Beach, was sued for environmental damages caused by waste water injections at their drilling site in Kern County, California. Food crops and nearby farms have suffered damages near E&B’s drilling site, due to contaminated ground water from E&B’s waste water injections, the farmers claim.
E&B is proposing to put four of these waste water injection wells on the tiny 1.3 acre proposed drilling site in Hermosa Beach. Is this the type of heavy industry and liability we want in Hermosa Beach? Did the environmental impact report for E&B’s drilling site in Kern County state that ground water pollution would occur?
The environmental impact report for E&B’s proposed project in Hermosa Beach has certified nine significant and unavoidable negative impacts to Hermosa Beach’s environment if the project is approved. Is this what we want in our beautiful beach town?
