Clean Water Action is working to ban hydraulic fracturing (fracking), the treatment and dumping of fracking waste in our waters, and the transport of shale gas through sensitive areas. Fracking depletes water supplies, is not clean, and fracking waste contains carcinogenic and radioactive chemicals, such as arsenic, benzene, mercury, radium, diesel, and grease, that pose significant risk to human health and the environment.
There are many ways to get involved, from letter-writing and signing petitions, to attending press events and rallies. Take action below or contact Jenny Vickers at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The clock is ticking and time is running out for clean water. Right now, treatment facilities in Kearny, Carteret, and Elizabeth have been shipped fracking waste for treatment and disposal in NJ's waters!
Waste from drilling and fracking for shale gas has been shown to contain radioactive material and other known carcinogens.
Help Protect NJ's Water From Frack Waste!
Last year, due to incredible public concern about contamination, the NJ Legislature passed a bill (A575) to ban the practice of dumping frack wastewater in our water. However, Gov. Christie sided with industry and vetoed this bill!
Three industrial facilities on the Delaware River are consuming huge amounts of water and killing billions of fish each year under expired state permits. Today we took legal action to force these plants to reduce their impacts on the Delaware River as part of the campaign to Stop the Delaware River Fish Kills.
