The Rocky Mountain Front in Montana is one most ecologically rich and pristine areas left in the lower 48 states; from the Blackfeet Indian Reservation and Glacier National Park south to Augusta, Montana. This pristine landscape and some of the highest water and air quality in the nation is currently threatened by indiscriminate oil and gas drilling using unregulated hydraulic fracturing; which involves the use of highly toxic chemicals and large quantities of precious surface and ground water for drilling. Chemicals such as benzyl chloride, benzene, toulene and many others and unregulated placement of well pads near rivers, lakes, streams and rural residences pose a direct threat to the health of people and environment. We petition a ban on fracking on the Rocky Mountain Front, Montana.
