North Dakotans have a responsibility to uphold Theodore Roosevelt’s legacy against the Goliath oil and gas industry who wants to build a refinery near the national park named for Teddy in western North Dakota. Badlands Area Resource Council (BARC) is leading the fight have the Davis Refinery relocated to protect the integrity and beauty of TRNP.
BARC is the only grassroots group working on the front line and has been doing so for more than two years. We are a small group of local folks who live and work the land in the area surrounding the proposed refinery. We have strong ties to the land, the national park, and our community all of which are facing the threat of constant pollution.
Meridian has conveniently and unscrupulously changed their story about the Davis Refinery operation, presenting different sets of facts to different permitting agencies: telling the Public Service Commission that they would produce 49,500 barrels per day (bpd) to evade their siting permit process, while asking for and receiving permission to construct a 55,000bpd facility from the North Dakota Department of Health.
BARC members know we aren’t the only ones who believe putting refinery three miles from a national park is foolish and risky but we need your help. We are asking you to donate to help fight the battle on the ground to protect our land, our air quality, and our Park.
