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

Local legislators take action to protect our environment!

Nopaxton received word today that Rep. Gretchen Driskell (52nd District) and Rep. Jeff Irwin (53rd District) will be announcing a pair of bills aimed at protecting Michigan's precious natural resources.  The bills focus on restricting hydraulic fracturing ("fracking") and giving local Michigan governments and constituencies the opportunity to decide whether or not they'd allow potentially damaging drilling operations in their municipality.  For those that might not know, as Michigan law currently stands only certain types of municipalities have the ability to regulate drilling in their area, and townships (which constitute the vast majority of rural municipalities within the State) currently have no say at all.  Reps. Driskell and Irwin are taking a stand, and we'll find out more and pass it along.  
 For more information, their offices can be contacted at:
     Rep. Driskell (855) 627-5052 
     Rep.  Irwin    (517) 373-2577
