STILLWATER, Okla. – A recently formed organization is holding a public meeting to inform the public on the impact of fracking on residents.

The meeting will be held on May 13, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

“We have organized to educate out community about the detrimental effects of hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas – “fracking” – which is harmful to water supplies, wildlife, and property values,” says group spokesperson Earl Hatley, Grand Riverkeeper and Payne County landowner.

Payne County residents who are concerned about the impact of fracking on their property and the community are invited to attend and participate in this open discussion group, which will include a presentation by Earl Hatley, Grand Riverkeeper and Payne County property owner.
