MDEQ Public Hearing on Proposed Drilling in Southfield

Wed, Feb. 17 6pm

Southfield High School, 24675 Lahser Rd

Word of Faith Church, under the leadership of former Detroit City Councilperson Keith Butler, has entered into an agreement with Jordan Development Company to place a well on SaharaAd_03the 110-acre church property. The proposed well would drill straight down 2,900 feet in hopes of reaching oil that may be in the layers of rock below. Jordan Development has applied for a permit through the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), who is holding a public hearing on Feb. 17.
