The water we drink today is the water that the dinosaurs drank!

Our fresh water is not a renewable resource. Once it is contaminated, it is gone forever! The chemicals used in fracking are not biodegradable and contamination is irreversible. Contaminated water can flow for miles underground within the water table and ruin our Greene County streams and wells, even coming from adjacent counties and states.

Fracking in the US and Europe will mean the loss of huge quantities of our finite fresh water supply. Such water is already scarce in many places, leading to social and economic conflicts. Greene County is flush with fresh water that will become a valuable resource/commodity. Let us keep our Greene County water pure by opposing fracking anywhere in New York State and beyond.
