Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”, is the process of drilling and injecting fluid into the ground at a high pressure in order to fracture shale rocks to release natural gas inside. Each gas well requires an average of 400 tanker trucks to carry water and supplies to and from the site. It takes 1-8 million gallons of water to complete each fracturing job. The water brought in is mixed with sand and chemicals to create fracking fluid. Approximately 40,000 gallons of chemicals are used per fracturing. Up to 600 chemicalsare used in fracking fluid, including known carcinogens and toxins such as…lead, uranium, mercury, radium, methanol, and so much more….. Is this what you want your children to drink?

Why are our elected officials allowing fracking in our communities? Why are we electing these people? Get involved, make a difference!
