C&C: Apache Hosts Town Hall to Address Fracking Concerns in Balmorhea
These Cut-and-Copies were reported for Marfa Public Radio
Last night, the Apache Corporation hosted an open house at the Balmorhea Community Center to outline their plans for hydraulic fracturing in the area, and to address concerns of local residents. People attended for a variety of reasons.
Steve and Arleen Koehn live in the area and were curious what Apache’s presence would mean for them, as farmers.
We wouldn’t be what you call an environmental activist or anything like that. We use uh, this watershed here for irrigation. Crops and everything. It’s in the district water. It’s just nice to know, what the future holds for everybody.
Robert Epsy attended yesterday’s open house, too. He came with one thing on his mind -- a job.
Yeah, there are some people that enjoy the lake. Or concerned about the drilling. You know. Personally right now, i haven’t had a job in almost over a month, so uh, looking to see uh what’s available for apache.
