Pinedale Groundwater Forum Dec. 12
December 4, 2009
The Upper Green river Valley Coalition invites the public to participate in the Pinedale Groundwater Forum on Saturday, December 12, at the Sublette County Library meeting room in Pinedale.
The forum is intended to be an educational opportunity to explore groundwater policy, landowner issues, and an oil and gas industry perspective.
Representatives of the State Engineer’s Office, Dept. of Environmental Quality, and Wyoming Oil and Gas Conservation Commission; industry representatives from Shell, BP, and Geomatrix, along with landowners from around the state.
There will be presentations on the basics of groundwater standards from regulators and technical experts working in the field, and personal accounts from those who live near natural gas development.
The goal is to understand state agencies’ regulatory responsibilities for groundwater protection, landowners’ perspectives, and how industry implements standards on the ground.
Lunch and snacks will be provided, and donations are gladly accepted.
Please register by sending an email to Linda Baker, firstname.lastname@example.org, by Monday, December 7, 2009. Please provide your name, email, address, organizational affiliation (if any), and a telephone contact number.
There will also be a webinar set up for those who are unable to attend in person. Link will be provided when established.
For more information, please direct questions to Linda Baker by e-mail or call 307-367-3670.
