Could the towels be one of E&B’s “state of the art” mitigation measures for oil spills?
“Due to the close proximity of the site to neighbors, businesses and the public (within 100 feet of businesses, 160 feet of residences, 55 feet of the Greenbelt and 20 feet of the public sidewalks), numerous scenarios could cause odors off site. These could include various maintenance activities such as line, tank or vessel openings; workovers removing well hole equipment (pumps or tubing), thereby exposing the well equipment to the atmosphere; minor accident scenarios; and drilling activities including muds handling that could cause short-duration, intermittent odors, or pump leaks. Because odor thresholds for certain compounds found in the oil and gas industry are very low, in the parts per billion range, release of these compounds can cause odor impacts offsite. Therefore, due to the close proximity of neighbors, odor impacts could impact surrounding areas and would be a significant impact.”
Quote from the Hermosa Beach E&B Oil Drilling & Production Project Final Environmental Impact Report – Executive Summary, page ES-8.
This is a song written to raise awareness for the community of Hermosa Beach, California. The message & goal is to protect the natural environment of this oceanside enclave from potentially toxic industries, and preserve the active, healthy lifestyle.
This is a day in the life of the South Bay…Keep Hermosa Hermosa!
