"Fracking," or hydraulic fracturing, is a dangerous drilling technique that endangers our state's water, air, wildlife and public health. Yet oil and gas companies don't presently have to report when or where they frack wells in California -- or even what toxic chemicals they use.

More than 1,000 documented cases of water contamination across the country have been associated with fracking. As public concern has grown, California officials have begun talking about the need to monitor and regulate the industry.

The best way to protect California is to ban this dangerous drilling technique.

Right now your input is absolutely vital -- please speak out now by using the form below to ask the department to impose a ban on fracking, before irrevocable damage is done to our state.
