Allegheny Oil and Gas Field Training Weekend March 30 - April 4

	High demand for oil and gas are encouraging modern-day explorers to carve
up the Allegheny National Forest with roads, pipelines and wells.  These
roads, wells and pipelines are releasing sediment and toxic pollutants into
the creeks.  The EPA has already reported that Northwestern Pennsylvania
suffers from a chronic oil spill situation resulting from numerous small
discharges from thousands of wells, tanks and ponds.  Come learn how to
counter this threat to public lands in a weekend long workshop about the
operations of oil fields on public lands.  For more information contact Jim
Kleissler, Allegheny Defense Project at mailto:jkleissler at
