Save Andes from Fracking!

    1. Petition by

      L M

      Andes, NY

Delaware County, NY could be devastated by industrial hydro-fracking. While it seems like much of the county might be protected by being in the NYC watershed, there are no guarantees. We must protect our farms and our visitor-based economy, our wildlife, and our way of life from fracking and its by-products, including huge traffic impacts. We can -- and must -- use our ability for home rule to ban heavy industry from our town and roads.

      Petition Organizer

      The Andes Town Board is currently working on the draft of a ban that will ban fracking. They are currently considering a 6 month to 1 year moratorium as they watch what is happening with law suits levied at other communities by the gas companies. We need to keep communicating to them that this is what we want -- not all Board members are in favor of this ban. Please sign and pass the word. Thank you!

      Andes is the most beautiful place in the world. We just bought a home here and want to help protect it from corporate greed so my family can learn and nurture this area for their children one day.

      We need sustainable energy (solar, wind, geothermal, hydrogen, etc.), not misleading information from the oil and gas industry.

      They are only interested in showing a profit and have shown little interest in protecting the environment. Our future depends on clean water and other vital natural resources. Fracking will destroy these things.
