Fracking is a growing practice used in drilling for natural gas that threatens Michigan's water and air.Fracking has caused thousands of incidents of environmental contamination across the country.
Michigan can't afford to get this one wrong. Half of Michigan residents get their drinking water from groundwater wells. Tens of billions of dollars a year are pumped into the economy by water-dependent industries like fishing, boating and tourism, and countless jobs would be lost if our waters were contaminated.
Even though fracking practices have evolved significantly and become much more dangerous, our laws and safeguards have failed to keep up. As stewards of one-fifth of the world’s fresh surface water, we must act to protect its water resources and our Pure Michigan legacy.
Urge your State legislators to pass legislation to stop fracking and to update our weak environmental protections!
Your message will be sent to your State Representative, State Senator, and the Governor.
