Public Forum Event
6:30pm Thursday June 26, Transylvania County Library, 212 S Gaston St., Brevard, NC
The statewide Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League and their chapter People for Clean Mountains will hold a public forum on the impacts of exploration and extraction of natural gas in the mountains of North Carolina. The Pisgah Group of the NC Sierra Club will co-sponsor the meeting. Presenters at the meeting will be BREDL staffer Therese Vick, the League’s Anti-Fracking Campaign Coordinator, and Lou Zeller, Executive Director.
Vick, based in Raleigh, who has attended most of the state’s rulemaking meetings on the process known as hydrofracking, will discuss the impacts of the process on local communities including air and water pollution, landowner and property rights issues, and waste production and disposal.
Zeller will address the imminent geologic testing in mountain communities and the potential impacts in national forests. In addition to working in NC communities, the League has chapters in Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, South Carolina and Georgia.
CONTACTS: Louis Zeller (336) 982-2691, Therese Vick (919) 345-3673 www.bredl.org
