Denver is a great place to live. In fact, our quality of life rates in the top ten among U.S. Cities. Denver residents take pride in the city’s stunning natural beauty, good Rocky Mountain air and clean water, all of which support economic opportunities like craft brewing, fishing, cycling and kayaking. Denver’s pristine and accessible outdoor spaces inspire the healthy lifestyle for which Denver is known nationwide.
But the dangerous industrial process known as fracking could change all that.
This extreme oil extraction method is coming to Denver, threatening suburban housing developments in the City’s northeast neighborhoods where oil developers have been selling the land beneath working families’ homes for fracking.
And fracking is coming to our watershed: 280,000 acres of land are at risk of being fracked on the South Platte River Basin, which supplies more than a third of Denver’s drinking water.
Those who love Denver must stand together to prevent this dangerous practice and to protect our water, our health and our Mile High City.
