Mapping the Movement
Food & Water Watch is tracking the latest local measures against hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) and statewide efforts to stop or prevent the practice. Communities across the nation are lobbying their local and state elected officials because they believe fracking poses an unacceptable risk to their drinking water, their health and the future of their communities. Refer to the map below to see where the oil and gas shale plays are and where communities are lobbying their governments to ban fracking.
