Midsomer Norton Town Hall, The Island, BA3 2HQ
Speakers and a Question & Answer session
- What is Hydraulic fracturing (fracking)?
- Coal Bed Methane?
- Unconventional Gas Drilling?
- What are the potential risks to our communities?
Midsomer Norton is an area covered by a Petroleum Exploration and Development License, (PEDL.) PEDL licenses are sold by the Government to companies wishing to drill for unconventional gas. This puts our local area at risk of water and air pollution. There are also dangers to human and animal health.
You are invited to come along to find out more about the science, the drilling methods and the possible impacts of unconventional gas drilling on your family and community.Posted on: January 20, 2013
