Protect Ventura County from fossil fuels

oil rigs against a sunset

In a few days, Ventura County will vote on a plan that would create 2,500-ft health and safety buffer zones between toxic oil wells and homes as well as schools.

This would be a precedent setting policy that improves health outcomes for children and pregnant women, ultimately saving countless lives.There’s only one hitch: the oil industry is lobbying hard to reduce the safety buffer zones (known as setbacks), or even remove them from the legislation entirely.

We can’t let that happen. Raise your voice and demand that Ventura County require at least 2,500-foot setbacks for oil and gas wells from homes as well as schools.
