Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is hosting a public meeting regarding the development of model criteria for groundwater monitoring related to oil and gas well stimulation treatments, as specified in Senate Bill 4 (Pavley, Statutes of 2013).  LLNL is the expert that the State Water Board is working with to develop the model criteria for groundwater monitoring.

The meeting will be held at the Cal/EPA Building in Sacramento on December 11, 2014, from 8am to 5 pm. The meeting agenda will be sent in a future email notification.

At this meeting, LLNL will gather information on stakeholders perspective and ideas regarding oil and gas related activities on groundwater quality and the development of the groundwater monitoring model criteria.
