The national debate concerning hydraulic fracking or fracturing for oil and natural gas from Montana's eastern plains and Rocky Mountain front to North Dakota, and Wyoming has escalated in recent years. Experts from all fields have disagreed how and what affect the millions of gallons of water and chemicals being used to frack existing formations in Montana, North Dakota, and Wyoming has had on the environment near and long term.

What is known is that millions of gallons of water, sand, and chemicals are being injected into the ground in order to extract oil and natural gas. The chemicals are injected above ground from tanks that are required to be refilled and re injected to maintain the constant necessity to frack.

Communities from as far away as Pennsylvania to our neighbors in Wyoming have suffered the ill effects of fracking in their communities. Whether the chemicals used in fracking are seeping into the ground from mishandling or misapplication above the ground or leaking through faulty well casings; the fact of the matter is communities are experiencing effects from ground and ground water pollution consistent with chemicals used in the fracking process. As recently as last year, state officials in Ohio said that earthquakes were probably caused by wastewater from frack drilling was injected into disposal wells.
