Seismic Victory! It's Time to Celebrate
Posted: January 20, 2017

After Drilling, We Won on Seismic Testing Too!

The January 6 denial of federal seismic testing permits by the Bureau of Ocean Management (BOEM) crowned a year of successful civic engagement and public interest advocacy.

30 years after its creation, ushered in by a landmark community's victory against the proposed siting of an oil refinery in Georgetown, SCELP is proud to be once again on the side of a winning and inspiring coalition of concerned citizens and advocates to stop offshore drilling and its industrial bedfellows.

Join the SCELP team, SODA friends and supporters and many other Don't Drill SC allies on February 12 for a celebratory Oyster Roast in Charleston.
