Although Florida is currently home to only 87 wells, Food & Water Watch found that between 2015 and 2018, production led to 35 spills, averaging 9 a year.
From June 2015 to October 2018 at least 330 gallons of oil and 27,746 gallons of wastewater spilled into soil, water, farmland, and land near schools. Collier County, just next to the Everglades, experienced one of the largest volume oil spills in the state when a tank holding 10,000 gallons of wastewater and oil ruptured in 2015.
Governor DeSantis has spoken out against drilling in the Everglades. But we need him to take measurable action to stand up to Big Oil by banning all forms of fracking statewide and continuing to stand against any drilling in the Everglades.
Let Governor DeSantis know you're counting on him to keep the Everglades and all of Florida FREE from all forms of fracking.
