Concerned about hydrofracking in the Chesapeake Bay watershed? Share your voice!

Kevin Heatley

Recent changes in drilling technology have created massive interest from international corporations in undertaking natural gas extraction within the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Given the scale of the intended conversion of current forest cover to industrial sites, and the inherent water quality problems associated with the use of toxic materials in hydrofracking, Biohabitats has serious concerns over the suitability of this activity in our region. We urge you to join us in supporting the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s request to President Obama that a comprehensive federal programmatic environmental impact statement be developed regarding regulation of the Marcellus gas industry. Please contact kpatten@cbf.org at the Chesapeake Bay Foundation for more details.  Please add the voice of your organization to the call for action! For individuals who want to show support, a citizens’ petition will soon be posted on the Chesapeake Bay Foundation’s web site (http://www.cbf.org/)

    I would like to add that fracking is a large concern in the Ohio River Basin, the largest provider of water to the Mississippi River (60%), so by default, the whole Lower Mississippi basin should be concerned.
