OIL DRILLING UPDATE-SOTVO


commissioner georgia hiller, COLLIER COUNTY

12:30:50-:02

12:31:08-:12

My concern is DEP has failed to do what it has an obligation to do.

ROB MOHER, CONSERVANCY OF SWFL PRESIDENT

12:41:38-:42

It basically shows how detached they are from anything but their own profits.

HERSCHEL

12:24:58-:04

When that deadline passes, we're going to evaluate what they did and what they didn't do and ultimately we're going to hold them accountable.

THE DEMANDS ARE THE LATEST FALLOUT FROM WHAT THE D-E-P CALLS UNAUTHORIZED DRILLING AT THE HUGHES' NORTH COLLIER SITE.

THE D-E-P TOLD COMMISSIONERS ---

THE DAN A HUGHES COMPANY HAS UNTIL JULY 15TH TO MEET IT'S DEMANDS.

AFTER THAT TIME-

IT'S GOING TO EVALUATE WHAT THE COMPANY HAS DONE AND HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE. Return to index of stories...
