Compressor stations keep oil or gas flowing through pipelines - they're dirty, they're loud and they are prone to accidents. But the Ohio EPA wants to make it easier for them to get permits - and they want to cut out public input.
EPA is poised to make a critical decision that will impact the air we breath. They are deciding whether to regulate air pollution from fracking. TAKE ACTION: Tell EPA to require cleanup of methane pollution, protect our health and climate!
