Saw on the net that this area has been fracked since 2003, AND cracks in home foundations & driveways are getting worse lately:
Now operated by Plains Exploration & Production Co., or PXP, the nation’s largest urban oil field is at the center of a study that may provide some answers for residents.
The study is on fracking — an efficient but controversial method of extracting oil and natural gas from areas once thought to be depleted — and results should be in hand by next month.
Steve Rusch, vice president of the Texas-based company, said the study is the first of its kind in California.
