|Neighbors of Oil and Gas is a new resource for introducing people living near oil and gas development to the different state and local agencies that enforce environmental rules for the oil and gas industry. This collaboration between The Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), the Rio Grande International Study Center (RGISC), and Texas Impact-Texas Interfaith Center for Public Policy is dedicated to helping residents and communities of the Eagle Ford Shale recognize and effectively report incidents and changes in environmental quality resulting from oil and gas activity. Neighbors of Oil and Gas offers a series of bilingual workshops that address: how to report suspected contamination and workplace hazards; agency investigation procedures; baseline water quality assessment and monitoring; and documenting odors and recognizing poorly operating flares.
