The California State Department of Conservation workshop to discuss fracking in the Baldwin Hills Oil Field.

“These workshops are to be conducted as part of a comprehensive information gathering process aimed at the development of regulations governing hydraulic fracturing … These workshops are intended as an information gathering exercise to advise the Department about specific public concerns regulations could address.”

This is the only statewide fracking workshop being held in the Los Angeles area.
