Oil Drilling Proposal in West Adams WithdrawnPosted by Erin Steva, Brownfields Policy Analyst on February 17th, 2015
A controversial proposal to drill and redrill three wells at a West Adams oil production site on Jefferson Boulevard at Budlong Street was withdrawn last month. In November, approximately 100 people attended a hearing on the application with most attendees opposed to the proposal. Speakers expressed concern about the lack of protections for residents of neighboring homes, some as close as 60 feet away, and requested a full environmental review. CHC testified and submitted a letter in support of the community’s request for full environmental review.
