High-volume, horizontal hydraulic fracturing is opening up previously untapped natural gas reserves in Michigan shale deposits. Fracking is today one of Michigan’s most controversial environmental issues, a potential threat to our water, earth and air.
Right now Michigan is experiencing a “gold rush” for drilling rights on public and private land. A fifth of Kent County has already been leased for oil and gas exploration including the White Pine Trail, Yankee Springs Recreational Area and the Rogue River and Cannonsburg State Game Areas.
While we don’t know every chemical that makes up the cocktail of lubricants, sand and solvents used in fracking, or the threat to our water resources, we do know that each fracking well destroys millions of gallons of freshwater. And that’s just the beginning. Learn the fracts… before it’s too late.
As expected, extraurban communities account for the largest percentage of leases, with the highest concentration on the county’s eastern boundary near the Ionia County site where the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality recently permitted a high-volume well.
WMEAC today launched a campaign to increase awareness of high-volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing in West Michigan. Commonly known as fracking, the controversial process has sparked strong interest in local lands never before considered practical for oil and gas exploration.
