The OC Water Summit is scheduled for the morning of Friday, May 16, at Disney’s Grand California Hotel, and people opposed to fracking in Orange County want you to know it. This annual meeting of water district officials and private industry lobbyists will be the subject of a protest against hydraulic fracturing and acidizing of oil and gas wells, commonly known as “fracking,” between 7:30 and 9:00 a.m. Friday morning.
According to the group Food and Water Watch “Orange County is already being fracked. It could affect the groundwater basin that supplies drinking water to 2.4 million people. That’s why we’re working to ban fracking in the OC.”
