New Website Helps Landowners With Fracking Questions

The Natural Resources Defense Council has just launched a new website devoted to helping residents living above shale deposits avoid adverse health effects from gas drilling. The site, entitled “Don’t Get Fracked!” includes questions on health, landowner rights, environmental impacts, pollution from spills and accidents, and state regulations.

The site is organized based on common questions such as “What can I do to keep my drinking water clean?” And “How much can I get paid if someone wants to drill on my land?” Much of the “Burning Questions” from readers and listeners we’re now tackling are answered on the NRDC’s handy, user friendly site.
