Kent, OH — As the Ohio Department of Natural Resources prepares new rules governing the disposal of toxic fracking waste in Ohio this spring, residents next door in Pennsylvania today recounted their stories of illness, water contamination, and damage to their livelihoods due to dirty drilling operations. Environment Ohio Research & Policy Center presented the residents’ Shalefield Stories as the latest evidence for rejecting fracking, even as state regulators consider permitting new football field sized lagoons of toxic fracking waste nearby Ohio drilling sites.
Across the country, fracking is contaminating drinking water, making nearby families sick with air pollution, and turning forest acres into industrial zones. We believe it is vital for the public to hear directly from people living on the frontlines of fracking, and so Environment America Research & Policy Center is supporting the Shalefield Stories project—a booklet designed and published by local activists where people impacted by fracking tell their stories, in their own words.

Burning fossil fuels to generate electricity pol- lutes our air, contributes to global warming, and consumes vast amounts of water—harm- ing our rivers and lakes and leaving less water for other uses. In contrast, wind energy produces no air pollution, makes no contribution to global warming, and uses no water.
