Stand up for Fayette County’s frack waste ban!

We want to share an important message from our friends at Headwaters Defense. Please read on to see how you can support Fayette County’s historic ban on oil and gas waste disposal!


CALL TO ACTION: Fayette County’s
Frack Waste Ban is Being Challenged in Court

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!

  1. If you are available, please attend the court date! It will be heard in front of John T Copenhaver at 10 am Friday, June 10th at the Southern District Court of West Virginia (300 Virginia St E. Charleston, WV 25301). Note: You will also need a valid state-issued photo ID in order to enter the courthouse.
  2. If you choose to attend, WEAR BLACK. All the attendees will be showing their support and collective mourning of the damage done to our water and health by showing up in all black attire.
For the water, land, and people,
Headwaters Defense

We hope you’ll consider joining Headwaters Defense this Friday as they fight to uphold their frack waste ban in Fayette County!
