Oxford County Gets Funding from Province

A campaign is being launched in Oxford County regarding abandoned oil and gas wells.

OXFORD COUNTY - Funding from the provincial government is coming to Oxford County.

A total of 1-hundred and 5 thousand dollars will help with a public awareness campaign focused on the risks from abandoned oil and gas wells, and the tools for landowners to identify and plug oil wells that will help keep communities safe.

The funds will go towards educational materials and emergency response supports, such as road closure trailers, supplies for emergency reception centres, and the development of hazard-specific emergency response plans for abandoned oil and gas wells.

In Oxford there is an estimated 5-hundred abandoned oil and gas wells on rural properties.
