research - report - monitor - act
Citizens for Responsible Oil and Gas was founded in 2013 by community volunteers who saw the need for a watch-dog organization to ensure oil and gas projects in Ventura County are properly reviewed, permitted and monitored according all applicable laws. Now in 2016 we are a non-profit 501c3 organization, have hundreds of members - we are making a difference.
Our goal is to protect our airshed, watershed, oceans, forests, land stability, wildlife, agriculture and human health by ensuring all oil and gas projects are properly reviewed in accordance with all local, state and federal laws.
CFROG's all volunteer Board and Advisory Board work to be a resource to the community, public agency staff and local elected officials in reviewing oil and gas projects and ensuring that all potential environmental impacts, including cumulative impacts, are studied and fully considered for all projects. CFROG uses current science to protect public health, public safety and the environment. CFROG reviews all oil and gas projects that come up for review, renewal or modification in Ventura County, and when necessary provide comments and data and file appeals and/or lawsuits.
CFROG is a grassroots advocacy organization aimed at mobilizing communities across Ventura County to hold their local planning officials accountable for approved oil and gas projects.
