The mission of the Whittier Hills Oil Watch (WHOW) is to engage Whittier residents in a discussion on the environmental, social, economic and political issues associated with the proposal by Matrix Oil to renew oil drilling and build a processing facility in our hills.
WHOW is firmly opposed to any oil drilling project that would disturb the ecology of our hills including the current proposal to drill and build their facilities on 17.2 acres of land that is a recovering wilderness.
Please join us in our effort to ensure that our hills are protected and that no drilling is allowed in the Whittier Hills.
