Stand up for Fayette County’s frack waste ban!
This Friday, June 10th at 10am, the Fayette County Commission's historic ban on oil and gas waste disposal is being challenged by EQT Corporation. EQT is seeking a permanent injunction against the ordinance to make these kind of county-wide bans unenforceable. We will be doing our best to make sure our ordinance stands, to set a precedent in Fayette County that will uphold other county's rights to enact similar ordinances. But we need your help!
