Don’t Allow More Fracking in One of America’s Most Polluted Areas

Target: Michael D. Nedd, Acting Director, Bureau of Land Management

Goal: Don’t destroy thousands of acres of public land for natural gas drilling.

Nearly 100,000 acres of land in Utah may be destroyed by natural gas drilling, also know as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Both the air and water will be negatively impacted as workers drill deep into the earth to extract the energy source.

This area of Utah, in the counties of Duchesne, Uintah, and Emery, already has some of the worst air pollution in the nation, well above the federal limit. Fracking, and the equipment, vehicles, and construction that go with it, will worsen the pollution, threatening the health of families in the area, as well as the land’s endangered species.

The Trump Administration, which proposed this action, is showing a complete lack of regard for Americans and their health. Sign the petition and demand that fracking not move forward in this area.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Nedd,

Oil drilling in Duchesne, Uintah, and Emery Counties in Utah has already caused the air pollution to far exceed federal limits. Now, nearly 100,000 acres of land in the region are set to be open for more fracking. The pollution fracking brings will carry with it irreversible and negative public health consequences.

This region of Utah cannot handle much more pollution. Families and endangered species in the area deserve to live healthy lives with water they can drink and air they can breathe. I ask that you not move forward with plans to allow fracking in this area.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]
