The California Division of Oil Gas and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) is currently developing regulations on fracking, acidizing and well stimulation and is taking official public comments on the proposed rules until January 14, 2014.
With the passage of Senate Bill 4 (Pavley), the state is now required to regulate all forms of oil and gas well stimulation, including fracking, for the first time ever.
They’re at it again – the Oil and Gas Industry, along with their friends in Congress are trying to make it easier to drill on our federal and tribal lands. H.R. 2728, introduced by Representative Bill Flores (R-TX) would keep the federal government from protecting federal lands from the dangers of hydraulic fracturing. The oversight of oil and gas development on these lands would fall to a weak patchwork of regulations that vary widely from state to state. Simply put – H.R. 2728 puts our federal lands, our legacy, at risk. We have to stop this bill today. Click here to send a message to your Representative today and tell them to stand up to industry and say “No” to H.R. 2728. We should be protecting our lands more, not less.
The clock is ticking and time is running out for clean water. Right now, treatment facilities in Kearny, Carteret, and Elizabeth have been shipped fracking waste for treatment and disposal in NJ's waters!
Waste from drilling and fracking for shale gas has been shown to contain radioactive material and other known carcinogens.
Help Protect NJ's Water From Frack Waste!
Last year, due to incredible public concern about contamination, the NJ Legislature passed a bill (A575) to ban the practice of dumping frack wastewater in our water. However, Gov. Christie sided with industry and vetoed this bill!
