If West Bay continues to work at the well site, they may be in violation of the township's moratorium. If you see them operating, please immediately notify the township and OSHA (Scio: 734-369-9400; OSHA: 1-800-321-OSHA). WRITE DOWN your complaint, the date and time, and who you spoke with. Then send that to us by mail or email, so we can keep track. Click the link below for a printable form (PDF) to use to document complaints. Please complete this form and submit it to Scio Township, and send us a copy if you can.
Sens. Brandenburg and Rocca, representing Macomb County (Shelby Township), introduced a bill today that would change the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act (NREPA, which MEPA is part of) for townships with over 70,000 residents and preventing wells within 450 feet of residences.
If you live near the site of the first proposed oil well (which has not yet been approved), we recommend that you get your well water tested to establish a baseline.
