Christopher Grobbel, Ph. D. gave a presentation to CACC’s General Membership Meeting on October 4, 2014: “Environmental Risks from Michigan Oil and Gas Development – What Can We Do?” His powerful presentation gives some basic history of the oil and gas industry in Michigan and also lists important tools that local communities can utilize to help protect their watersheds. Among these tools are: local zoning laws, the Public Trust Doctrine and environmental protections in place through the Michigan Environmental Protection Act (MEPA). Christopher Grobbel is a practicing environmental consultant based in Traverse City and an adjunct professor, teaching environmental science, law and policy at MSU since 1992. He has graciously allowed CACC to post his presentation on our website.
