Ban high-volume slickwater hydrofracking in Town of Groton
Petition Background (Preamble):
Can our local government step in and fill the gap? We propose that the Town Board of Groton, New York enact a total ban on the technique known as high-volume slick water, hydraulic fracturing for gas extraction.
We believe that allowing this practice in our community will significantly endanger our health and well-being. Hydrofracking is a heavily industrialized process that in surrounding states has severely snarled traffic and damaged local agriculture, hunting, fishing, tourism, roads, and community economies.
We urge the Town of Groton to ban high-volume slickwater hydrofracking, including water withdrawal, materials trucking, and drilling waste disposal.
