Last week, the Alameda County Board of Supervisors voted to end oil extraction in Livermore by upholding an appeal of the approval of a permit extension for E&B Natural Resources. Had the appeal been turned down, oil extraction would have continued for another ten years.

E&B had requested the extension of its current permits to work the oil fields near Patterson Pass Road. The extension was granted by the East County Board of Zoning Adjustments. The decision was appealed by environmental groups citing, among other things, past infractions, potential impacts to water quality and public health, seismic impacts, and negative impacts to the tourist economy and wineries.
