INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
The Obama Administration is considering an alarming proposal to allow
some 108 new fracking wells.
Send a message urging the Bureau of Land Management to keep Grand Valley’s scenic vistas and wildlife habitat off limits to fracking.
Grand Valley is home to sensitive species like the burrowing owl, the white-tailed prairie dog, elk and mule deer. It also provides clean drinking water for thousands of people in the city of Grand Junction.
But oil and gas companies are racing to expand dangerous fracking operations.
And Colorado has already become one of the poster children for the perils of fracking, with hundreds of occurrences of hazardous waste spills, groundwater and river contamination and other ill effects being reported.
Allowing the construction of more than 100 new wells in Grand Valley at such close proximity to the primary drinking water source for the Grand Junction metropolitan area would be nothing short of disastrous.
Thank you for everything you do for animals!
