Noise pollution from gas and oil fracking

This petition had 33 supporters

In my county (Ohio County,WV) there is heavy gas and oil fracking.  This has lead to numerous almost daily issues with noise, light and heavy truck traffic on our county roads.  As I write this, there are 5-7 gas truck passing my house every 15 minutes twenty four hours of the day seven days a week.  In conjunction with this the well that is nearest my house which is just west of me is actively fracking the well.  The noise that is produced from this is similar to an airport with large planes taking off continuously.  This is in the country we are talking about.  Our roads are being destroyed by the heavy truck traffic.  I am having trouble sleeping, this leads to anxiety and poor job performance and irritability.  I am a physician and obviously this is making it very hard for me to perform my job.  I know this is going to get worse.  I need help and direction on what I can do to raise awareness and limit the adverse effects this is causing me and many other people in our county.  Thank you
