Together, we oppose hydrofracking in Boulder County, Colorado. High-volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing or "fracking" uses 4-9 million gallons of fresh water per well. Water that is treated with known carcinogens, such as formaldehyde, methanol, and radioactive chemicals. This poisoned water can leach into and contaminate our groundwater and pollutes our air.
Fracking damages the environment, contributes to Climate Change, and poses health and safety risks to families and community members of all ages. These are not risks that can be prevented by regulation. The only safe and sustainable response is to ban hydraulic fracking completely in our community.
I make this petition to prevent the poisoning of Boulder County, Colorado’s water, air, and land on which our life, health, and economic prosperity all depend–for current and future generations.
I petition Boulder County Commissioners to ban hydrofracking in Boulder County, Colorado.
