Colorado is experiencing an unprecedented boom in oil and gas drilling.
It is critical that any fracking activity be done in a responsible manner that avoids harm to property values, protects Colorado's water supply, and protects the public health and environment.
Drilling activity near radioactive materials, SuperFund sites, explosives, endangered habitat or in residential areas poses serious risks if not handled properly.
In the interest of our people, land and water, I am asking that you please vote "yes" on SB 107, The Fracking Safety Act.
SB 107 (Carroll - Wilson) protects property rights, health and safety by addressing water quantity, water quality (contamination), use of closed loop systems, water set-asides, injection of cancer-causing chemicals into the ground, environmental bonding and drilling activity near radioactive materials, explosives and Super Fund sites.
