Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) has the potential for environmental concern in California’s Central Valley. This potential becomes more alarming with the current state of our water supply in California, as approximately 1 million to 8 million gallons of water are used per drill.
I encourage strict regulations of techniques, chemicals used, drill site locations and waste water disposal in order to keep our state safe. Fracking potentially could endanger our ground water supply, air quality and environment without regulation.
Let’s make sure California remains safe. Let’s make sure regulations are in place to protect our communities from potential harm.
