Enact Moratorium on Underground Wastewater disposal of UIC gas wells.

This petition had 376 supporters


Cease underground wastewater disposal from hydraulic fracturing wells until such time as a full and complete study by the Oklahoma Geological Survey and USGS can determine if there is or isn't a causal relationship between this activity and the recent earthquake activity in multiple counties in Central Oklahoma. Several states have recently enacted similar moratoria on the process in order to investigate recent earthquake events that may be connected with it. Oklahoma should take action along the same vein. Earthquake activity in central Arkansas has become noticeably less frequent since their moratorium was put in place last year. Erring on caution would suggest Oklahoma institute a similar ban in order to study the effects and determine if there is a causal relationship in the case of the Lincoln Co. earthquakes.
