Stop fracking in Broomfield Colorado

This petition had 641 supporters


Hydraulically fracturing gas wells injects known carcinogens into the ground and uses millions of gallons of our most precious resource, water. Aside from the potential of ground water contamination, recent studies have shown that air quality around these wells is extremely poor - 5 times the federal limit and puts us at a 66% increased risk of cancer. These wells should not be placed near our schools and homes for the safety and health of our citizens.
