Monday, 11/7 – Fracking Press Conference

On Monday, November 7, at 2:00 pm, there will be a Hydrofracking Press Conference at the Fracking Well Pad on Sunset Trail Rd., 2 miles south of M-72 between Grayling and Kalkaska. The application for the well was filed by Encana Oil & Gar (USA) Inc., and is referred to as the Sunset Trail Pipeline in Excelsior Township, Kalkaska County, Michigan.

Meet at 1:00 pm at Dingmans — Nic from Clean Water Action will be there — and move on to the fracking well pad location. Or just meet at the well pad location a little before 2:00. Bring your own signs, or use one of the ones that will be ready-made.
