Save Our Illinois Land

Clean Air, Clean Water, Clean Land

Our long-term goal is to halt permitting and expansion
of oil and gas pipeline infrastructure in Illinois
and to keep fossil fuels in the ground.
Our immediate target is the Line 61 ‘twin.’
Enbridge has begun initial surveying activities in Wisconsin and Illinois.

Update on Fracking in Illinois (November, 2017)

In another huge win for people power, Woolsey Operating Company, LLC has decided to abandon its fracking proposal and withdraw its application for a wastewater injection well in Illinois.

The company’s decision to not frack Illinois comes after fracking activists held multiple anti-fracking rallies across the country, submitted over 5,000 comments to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) and issued even more complaints about the fracking permit approval process.

IDNR under Governor Rauner granted their permits to Woolsey Energy to frack in White County, Illinois. (Summary by Jackie Filson, Food & Water Watch)
