We, Nopaxton.com, are a growing group of Lodi and Saline residents that are concerned about the impact that oil and gas drilling and associated operations may have on our land and environment. Those who live here appreciate the natural beauty, clean water and air, and relative peace and quiet, and want to keep it that way. Based on substantial freely and publicly available information, it is clear that exploitation of oil, gas, and other mineral resources under our land may result in a variety of unintended, unwelcome side-effects, and we do not intend to allow that to happen.

If you live in Lodi or Saline and have been approached by a company calling itself Paxton Resources, or are concerned about potential side-effects of oil and gas drilling on your or your neighbors properties and want to learn more, please contact us at: nopaxton at gmail dot com

Seismic Testing in the Saline Township Area

It has been noticed by neighbors in the Austin/Dell/Grass area that surveying stakes have been going up all over the place this week.  Apparently, Paxton and their subcontractors are attempting to mark off territory so that they can perform additional seismic testing.  The purpose of the testing is undoubtedly to identify pockets of oil.   While the flags run across many fields and directions, a neighbor found the map of Saline township below.  It is assumed that the green areas are those that have already signed leases, the yellow are areas that have given permission to test (but not necessarily signed leases), and the red are those that have not given any permission or signed leases.  We apologize for the quality of the image, but it should be fairly obvious if compared with Google Maps or eWashtenaw site or this map of Saline Township

Saline Township starts just south of 7980 Grass Rd. so about 1/3 of Grass Rd. is in Saline Township and the part north of this address is in Lodi township.
