Hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," has contaminated drinking water supplies and waterways, increased air pollution, and marred landscapes in the states where it is prevalent. Now, out-of-state oil and gas companies want to bring this risky drilling practice to North Carolina, which could threaten Jordan Lake, the Eno River, the Deep River-- and the drinking water supplies for hundreds of thousands.
In a controversial vote, the North Carolina General Assembly has lifted some restrictions on fracking, but a moratorium on drilling remains. Sign our petition to make sure we protect our water, air, and quality of life from the form of gas drilling that has been linked to more than 1,000 cases of water contamination around the country.
