With the discovery of a large reservoir of natural gas located two miles underground in Louisiana, gas companies descended upon the state. Using methods of hydraulic fracturing or fracking to extract the gas from under the surface, the companies recklessly placed residents and landowners in harm’s way which also could have caused water contamination.
While the gas companies continue to claim that fracking is safe, studies have shown that the toxins being blasted into the rock to extract the gas are harmful to water supplies, as well as air quality. In Louisiana, fracking has had a profound impact on water supplies and wells, forcing the evacuation of families throughout the state.
If you fear that your water supply is in danger, you must act now. The state of Louisiana has done little, if anything, to regulate these practices, leaving residents vulnerable to the potential dangers.
