Protect over three thousand children in the Mars Area School District by preventing construction of hydraulic fracturing well pads within a two mile radius around the school district property.

In light of a recent gas well explosion in Greene Co, PA (among others), this is simply a common sense precaution protecting our most valuable assets while the debate regarding safety is ongoing. Kids need space, let's give them a couple miles.

      Fracking is heavy industry, a complex operation with many opportunities for failures that threaten health and safety. It should not be done near our children whose smaller size and developing systems make them a vulnerable part of our population.
