Oil Project Overview

The City of Whittier is confronting issues related to oil well drilling and mineral extraction now (2014). Citizens interested in the issue deserve to be informed.

There are at least two sides to the issue. Here we will present facts as well as links to various opinions.

Summary Project Description The Whittier Main Oil Field Development Project (“Project”) will involve drilling oil wells and producing oil and natrual gas from a designated “Consolidated Central Site (“Site”), located on property owned by the City of Whittier, which is part of the Puente Hills Landfill Native Habitat Preserve (“Preserve”). The preserve is located at the eastern edge of Los Angeles County, bounded by the San Gabriel River on the west and the Chino Hills to the east. The 3,869 acre Preserve extends across the cities of Whittier, La Habra Heights, and the unincorporated communities of Rowland Heights and Hacienda Heights.

The following web sites have differing opinions.

The Consolidated Central Site successfully balances Whittier’s environmental and economic future.
