    Currently the San Ardo field has become very active in the last few years.  It is one of the oldest field in the USA.  You can see it from the 101.

    It is at the Headwaters of the Salinas River, which flows through one of the most important agricultural growing areas and empties into Monterey Bay.  The Salinas Valley is America's Salad Bowl and also grows many spices for McCormick.  Much of the water used is from ground wells and from 2 reservoirs fed by the local mountains.

    As ML Miller is reminding us, we don't know what is in fracking fluid, but the question I have "do you want the mystery chemicals in your salad greens?"

    Congressional elections have consequences!
