Bear Butte Oil Drilling: Urgent request for Public Written Comments ASAP!


re- public comments on Bear Butte Oil Well drilling due now. Urgent!

Dear Defenders,
  
Public written comments are due by March 30th for a rehearing on Oil Well Drilling near Bear Butte.
  
Approximately one and one-half miles west of Bear Butte, the SD Board of Minerals and Environment approved of Oil and Gas Order No. 17-2010 for Nakota Energy LLC.  However, they did not do a review according to South Dakota Historic Preservation laws.  Bear Butte has National Historic Landmark designation as well as being a sacred site to many Native American nations from North and Central America.
  
Please send your written comments to  SD DENR, Oil and Gas Supervisor Fred Steece at fred.steece@state.sd.us
and South Dakota State Historic Preservation Office, Jason Haug, State Historic Preservation Director at
Jason.Haug@state.sd.us

Another hearing, open to the public for verbal comments, will be held on Thursday, April 21, 2011, at 10:15 AM (CDT) at the Joe Foss Building, 523 East Capitol, Pierre, SD.

  
For more information go to the SD Department of Environment and Natural Resources website.
  
If each member of Defenders of the Black Hills sent in an email to Fred Steece and Jason Haug, the Board of Minerals would know how many people are concerned for this National Historic Landmark and sacred site.  As a National Historic Landmark, comments from all over the nation would have to be considered. 
  
Let’s see if we can flood DENR, Fred Steece, and Jason Haug with our comments.
  
Thank you.
  
Charmaine White Face, Coordinator
Defenders of the Black Hills
