Ventura County School Moves Ahead With Relocation Plans To Avoid Concerns About Oil, Gas Pipelines

Mar 16, 2016

A tiny, one school Ventura County school district is dealing with what it considers a potentially explosive problem.

Concern about possible danger from four oil and gas pipelines which run through, and next to the campus prompted the district to move ahead with a plan to relocate the entire school.

The Somis Union School District closed escrow on ten acres of land Tuesday which will be the now home of its K-8 school.

But, the district still has to raise eight million dollars to complete the first phase of the project.
