Keep fracking out of the City of Boulder & Boulder County

The natural beauty of Boulder would be significantly harmed by the destructive effects of fracking.

Boulder has 19 drilled wells within the City limits including five wells near Wonderland Lake in North Boulder.

The City of Boulder sits on top of the same "shale play" being actively fracked in Weld County.

Fracking poisons 4 to 9 million gallons of fresh water per well that is no longer available for agriculture.

Fracking keeps society dependent upon fossil fuels rather than shifting towards renewable energy.
