Tell Governor Brown: No More Oil Field Waste on Our Food!

Clementines

California's Central Valley produces a great deal of the fruits and vegetables sold across the U.S. But did you know that oil field wastewater is being used to irrigate crops in two water districts in the region?

Mandarin oranges, carrots and grapes are just some of the crops grown in areas that are selling farmers wastewater from oil drilling operations — and it's unclear to what extent this toxic water could be impacting the food we eat.

It's inexcusable that the oil industry is allowed to use American families' dinner plates as a disposal site for toxic oil field wastewater.

Tell California Governor Brown to stop allowing oil field wastewater to be dumped on farm fields!
