On September 12, 2012 a national coalition of local coordinators and groups in communities across America will hold simultaneous rallies throughout the day to shine light on the numerous problems associated with toxic fracking waste and its disposal, including its links to earthquakes, spills, and leaks.
Wednesday September 12th
6- 7 pm
Auburn City Hall
24 South Street Auburn NY 13021
Come join us Wednesday evening and make some noise about fracking waste. Learn about what is happening even here and now in Cayuga County with the poisons produced by hundreds of existing vertical wells. Imagine the effects of this waste magnified a millionfold with high volume drilling.
The Government Office of Accountability paper on Produced Water makes no distinction between conventional and unconventional waste. The sole distinction is volume.
Learn about our three active injection disposal wells in NYS – one just 8 miles from Auburn, 3/4 mile from the shore of Cayuga Lake and Montezuma Wildlife Refuge. Mary Menapace will share what she has learned from EPA documents on particulars of these wells.
Terry Cuddy will share what is going on with Auburn City Council’s recent ban then rescission of the ban on discharging untreated vertical well frackwaste into the outlet of Owasco Lake that ultimately flows to Lake Ontario. Written info will be available.
Stay tuned for other speakers.
Bring signs, banners, bells, drums, pots and pans and let’s make some noise about the frackwaste being sent downstream and injected into the earth in our home right here and now.
Let’s let Auburn City Hall, Governor Cuomo and President Obama know, like other good people across the country, we will not be sitting still and quiet for the fracking of our home. We will not allow it.
Come Wednesday evening and be part of this national event against the poisons of fracking.
For supper: supporting the local businesses – there are some very good eateries in Auburn – on Genesee St. alone, one block over – Dadabbo’s Pizza, Parkers (pub), Bambino’s ( Italian), and tex-mex Mesa Grande Taqueria. And the always great Connie’s (authentic SanAntonio tex mex) down the road on Wall St.
