EPA Public Hearing on Oil and Gas Pollution - 9 AM - 7 PM MT
Tuesday, November 30, 2021, 9:00 AM until 7:00 PM
Community Government Meeting
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will hold two online public hearings on the Agency’s proposed comprehensive new protections to sharply reduce pollution from the oil and natural gas industry – including, for the first time, methane reductions from existing sources nationwide. The proposed new Clean Air Act rule would lead to significant, cost-effective reductions in methane emissions and other health-harming air pollutants that endanger nearby communities. The public hearings will be live-streamed. Registration is not needed to view the live-streaming. Its link will be posted on the EPA's event webpage: EPA's event webpage
- November 30, 2021 – 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern time.
- December 1, 20201 – 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern time.
The hearing will be held online. To register to speak, or to watch a livestream of the hearing on both days, please visit Register here to speak. Registration is required to speak and the registration deadline is November 24. For people who are not speaking but would like to watch the hearing, EPA will post a link to a livestream shortly before the hearing starts each day.
The EPA also will accept comments on the proposal in writing until January 14, 2022. Comments the Agency receives in writing receive the same consideration as comments received at the public hearing.
