Join Food & Water Watch, Neptune Township's Environmental Commission, Bayshore Regional Watershed Council, WATERSPIRIT, Coastal Monmouth Democrats, and U.U. Monmouth County for a workshop on how to stop oil and gas fracking waste from entering your community.
Fracking waste can contain radium-226 and a slew of hazardous drilling chemicals that have been linked to cancer and birth defects. It can be spread on roads to melt ice, where it can run off onto school playgrounds, residential properties and farmland, ultimately contaminating rivers, streams and underground aquifers that feed local drinking water supplies.
Join us in Neptune on Wednesday, January 20 to learn about the pathways of exposure to toxic, radioactive fracking waste and the loopholes that allow it to be mismanaged and brought into local New Jersey communities. And hear from local officials who have successfully passed laws to protect their communities.
