Results of Fracking Are Irreversible
I am not a scientist nor a geologist, only a person concerned with what nature has provided for us. It would be a shame to upset the balance of things in the belief that a new enterprise could be financially beneficial when, in fact, it may be destructive.
I’m referring to fracking. In all that I’ve read, the results of fracking are irreversible. Therefore, if our aquifer is contaminated we can’t restore it to its original condition.
All businesses, schools, churches and homes are dependent on clean water. Without it, businesses will move away, churches and schools will close, and homes will become worthless.
County and state taxes will become nonexistent in these areas. I’d like to think that the home I’m planning to leave to my children will be an asset they can live in or sell, not a dried-up hulk on a piece of barren land.
I ask our legislators to carefully consider their decision on allowing fracking in our state. We need stringent controls, including the cost to relocate businesses, churches, schools and personal homes if the aquifer is contaminated.
