Don't Let the Oil and Gas Industry Dump its Toxic Waste in New Mexico

The oil and gas industry wants to dump its toxic waste into New Mexico’s clean water, threatening the health and safety of New Mexicans. Worse, it would set a dangerous precedent that could happen across the country.

A proposal by the state’s Oil Conservation Commission would make it easier for companies to use their toxic waste to drill and frack wells. The new rules would even open the door for the industry’s waste to be dumped on the land and discharged into streams.

We can’t let this happen! Speak out, sign the petition, and tell the New Mexico Oil Conservation Commission to put the brakes on its proposed regulations!
