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

More Oil Wells in Saline Township - Not Good News!

As some of our readers have noticed there are new wells going in in Saline Township which borders Lodi Towship to the south.   The most recent well permit applications are for the Kohler well and Lucas well.  Details of the well permit can be found at the DEQ website March 18 Oil Well Permit Applications Please note that only two of the wells listed on this report from the DEQ is for Saline township.  The others are in other parts of Michigan.    We are also aware of the well going in on the Feldkamp farm and of another well along Michigan Avenue in Saline township. 

It is interesting to note that at the bottom of page 1 there is a well going in in Muskegon and there is a note that reads:


WELL MAY BE COMPLETED UTILIZING HYDRAULIC FRACTURING. 

This is not good news for the residents of the State of Michigan.
