Got another signature tonight for the Oil money out pledge. Delaine Eastin, candidate for Governor. She is no moonbean. She has a history of environmental activism and opposes fracking. Supports a Statewide ban. She has never taken any oil money and her whole campaign is Bernique style and totally grass roots. She is real. Fearless. I asked her if as Governor would she enforce the Feb 15 shut down deadline of those 1650 wells and she assured me that illegal wells would be shut down without hesitation. I gave her the petition to Attorney General Becerra for some background info.
Hi my name is ___________ and I live in San Luis Obispo County. I am calling to say I do not approve of the aquifer exemption in San Luis Obispo.
1. The site has not met any of the standards or legal criteria for a Class I or II waste disposal site according to UIC program.
2. Injection of fluids begins only AFTER the EPA approves an aquifer exemption and an underground injection control permit is granted not the other way around. ARROYO GRANDE OIL FIELD HAS BEEN INJECTING TOXIC WASTE WITHOUT EPA APPROVAL FOR OVER 20 YEARS. THIS SITE IS IN VIOATION OF EPA rules
a) §264.11 Identification number. AGOF has no such ID Number b) 42 U.S. Code § 6921 – Identification and listing of hazardous waste
c) § 144.11 Prohibition of unauthorized injection. Any underground injection, except into a well authorized by rule or except as authorized by permit issued under the UIC program, is prohibited. The construction of any well required to have a permit is prohibited until the permit has been issued. No authorization by rule has been issued.
d) Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) to the RCRA prohibites disposal unless the waste has been treated to become non-hazardous. AGOF has not been so treated SO THE SITE DOES NOT QUALIFY FOR EXEMPTION STATUS.
3. And lastly the Arroyo Grande Oil Field is under a cease and desist order from your department’s Feb 15, 2017 shut down of 1650 unregistered wells. Eleven of those wells are at the AGOG and are illegally dumping toxic waste into the unincorporated areas. This site does not quality for exemption status until it is properly registered and authorized by the EPA. it does not have legal standing under the UIC program. An exemption does not make it legal. Shut down the illegal wells don’t approve them.
In conclusion: Because of the aforementioned inadequacies in the data I respectfully reject this supplemental information that fails to meet safety and health criteria under Federal Code of Regulation UIC program.
And further, I demand that the noticed shut down date of Feb. 15, 2017 issued by DOGGR is implemented immediately with fees and penalties in the amount of $12,375,000,000 owned taxpayers is delivered upon demand. We do so demand.300 days times 1650 wells @$25,000 each = $12,375,000,000.
You still have time to email that also. Do it NOW. EASY
OVER AND OUT FRIENDS.
