From State Senator Fran Pavley:

With passage of my Senate Bill 4 in 2013, California began regulating hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”) and other oil and gas well stimulation practices for the first time on January 1, 2014. The legislation also called for an independent scientific study of well stimulation operations and the associated risks. The California Natural Resources Agency commissioned the California Council on Science and Technology and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory to conduct the study, and the first of three volumes will be released this week (the second and third volumes are scheduled to be released in July).

You are invited to learn about the results of the study’s first phase via a public webinar, “Well Stimulation Technologies and their Past, Present, and Potential Future Use in California,” on Wednesday, January 14, 2015, from 3-4 p.m.
