Better Neighbors Partners with Neighbors of Oil and Gas in College Station, October 27, 2015

Texas Impact and the Texas Interfaith Center is partnering with Environmental Defense Fund and the Rio Grande International Study Center to hold a series of informational sessions this fall in communities throughout the Eagle Ford Shale region in South Texas.

This Neighbors of Oil and Gas initiative is dedicated to helping residents and communities of the Eagle Ford Shale recognize and effectively report incidents and changes in environmental quality resulting from oil and gas activity. The workshops will address different types of health and environmental risks that can occur during oil and gas development, including hydraulic fracturing.

We hope to introduce people living near oil and gas development to the different state and local agencies that enforce environmental rules for the oil and gas industry –these are the agencies that people can call if they have concerns about risks posed during oil and gas development. Well-informed citizens can help the industry and regulatory agencies to improve their prevention of and response to incidents, creating safer communities for those living among oil and gas development.

Come join us this fall at a Neighbors of Oil and Gas event near you!


When: 6 pm English / 7:30 pm Español

Where: Friends Congregational Church – UCC | 2200 Southwood Dr., College Station, TX 77845

Each presentation is free and open to the public.

Food and drinks will be provided and children welcome to attend.
