Petition Tag - groton
Neither the federal Environmental Protection Agency, nor the New York Department of Environmental Conservation has stepped forward to protect the people from the plundering of our resources, poisoning our water, crowding and damaging our roads, ruining our beautiful landscapes, and threatening our agriculture and tourism caused by industrialized gas extraction.
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.
As part of Connecticut's proud history, the Gronton Submarine Base, is one of Southeastern Connecticut's most treasured establishments.
The decision to close the Submarine Base in Groton will devastate our communities economically, culturally, and most of all, socially. We must prevent the base closure.
