Nicole Collier, State Representative from District 95, and Railroad Commissioner, Ryan Sitton, will hold a community forum to discuss the application process for injection wells in Texas.
The issue is pertinent to Tarrant County Green Party members as fracking and drilling operations are on the rise, and local city jurisdictions do not have the final authority in Texas to render decisions on oil and gas permits. This decision is made by the Railroad Commission.
Locally, an injection disposal well has been proposed near Lake Arlington that would threaten the water supply for a half million people in North Texas. This will be an opportunity for us to ask questions and learn the ropes for decision-making and challenging the decisions in Texas and protect our communities.
