FMOG indicated in a letter to the Zoning Administrator that the company intends to restart oil & gas extraction at the 4th & Washington site just yards from the LAUSD elementary school, Carson-Gore Academy of Environmental Studies. 

The school is named for the mother of the modern environmental movement Rachel Carson and former Vice President/environmentalist Al Gore.

NOTE:  While LAUSD was appropriately required to have an Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the construction of the Carson-Gore Academy of Environmental Studies, FMOG continues to oppose any such requirement to burn hundreds of thousands of cubic feet of gas per day at the Murphy site!
