Ban Fracking in Florida!
“Fracking,” an advanced well stimulation method, needs to be banned in Florida. Injecting toxic chemicals under pressure into our delicate limestone geology is too dangerous. There are several ways these chemicals can pollute the aquifer that provides 90% of us with our drinking water – casing failures, abandoned well leakage, deep well injection of used chemicals. The risks are too great. Our legislature needs to outlaw fracking.
Senate Bill 462 is a proposal to ban advanced well stimulation treatments (also known as “fracking”) in the state of Florida. Please ask the Senate Environmental Preservation and Conservation Committee to support SB 462 when they meet on Monday, February 5th. Please contact the members of this committee to let them know you support this important bill, and be sure to thank the co-sponsors of this bill for their dedication to protecting Florida’s environment!
