AB 356: Oil & gas groundwater monitoring

 
CLCV Supported
Failed Assembly 28-33 (6/4/2015)

The Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) improperly permitted over 2,500 wells to inject toxic chemicals and other fluids from oil and gas extraction operations into federally protected potential sources of drinking water. AB 356 would have required the State Water Board to vet DOGGR's aquifer exemptions and injection projects to ensure that sources of drinking water are protected.

No Senate action was taken on this item.
