∑ Over 500 abandoned oil wells exist in the Area of Review dating back to the 1930ís.†† These wells are potential pathways for toxic wastes to flow into our fresh water aquifers.
∑ Toxic wastes can be recovered in saltwater along with oil production and re-injected in Class II saltwater disposal wells in violation of state law.
∑ No regulations governing design of surface facilities
∑ Odor, noise, and air pollution concerns from storage tanks and approximately 150 trucks per day.
