Protect Pondera County from biofuel waste!

We need your help to help us protect groundwater and drinking water in Pondera County from biofuel waste. Here are the details.

In 2022, Montalban Oil and Gas Operations (MOGO) out of Cut Bank submitted permit applications to convert two wells in the Loneman Coulee Oil Field (located near Valier) to wastewater dumpsites for biofuels. The biofuels are produced by Montana Renewables, and used by Calumet Refineries in Great Falls. 

If these permits are approved, the wastewater will be injected into the ground at high pressure. This site is surrounded by semi-permeable layers of shale which means the wastewater could leach into nearby water sources if the well casings fail. The wells are located only a half mile from the Dupuyer Creek, which drains into Lake Frances, a source of drinking water. 

Local residents, farmers, and ranchers are concerned about possible leakage and contamination of the groundwater which could threaten their health and their livelihoods.
