Protect SLO Water Rally and Hearing
Jun 15 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

On June 15th a major court case of Big Oil vs. local SLO communities will be heard, and the decision will set a precedent for San Luis Obispo’s water. Big Oil wants to sacrifice a SLO aquifer to use a trash dump for toxic oil waste, and state oil regulators are rubber-stamping this proposal. Residents are fighting this, and the Center for Biological Diversity sued regulators for supporting this groundwater giveaway. The suit asking the court to set aside the state’s approval of water sacrifice and halt oil company injection into this underground water until regulators have complied with state environmental laws.

Join Protect SLO Water for a rally and hearing on June 15th to show that our community demands protections of our groundwater!
