Lawsuit Challenges Plan to Turn California Aquifer Into Dump for Oil Waste

Center for Biological Diversity

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - The Center for Biological Diversity today sued California regulators for supporting a so-called “aquifer exemption” plan to turn underground water in the Price Canyon area of San Luis Obispo County into a permanent disposal site for oil wastewater and other fluids. There are at least 100 water supply wells for drinking water and crop irrigation within a mile of this aquifer.

California is still experiencing widespread drought yet the powers-that-be have no qualms allowing energy giants dump their waste into already-distressed aquifers. Like the article states, the people (and all life) simply do not matter. WTF
