Public Meeting: Fracking Risks to Drinking Water for Arlington, Fairfax, DC Metro Area
Join me in Oakton
Fracking threatens the headwaters of the Potomac River — the Washington metro area's main drinking water source.
That's why major D.C. area water providers, local governments and conservation organizations have warned the U.S. Forest Service not to permit fracking in the George Washington National Forest in western Virginia.
The Forest Service could make a decision, which would affect not just drinking water, but recreation, tourism, and wildlife habitat, in the coming weeks.
Join me for a public meeting to discuss the possible risks of hydraulic fracturing in our backyard and drinking watershed.
This event is hosted by Great Falls Group of the Virginia Chapter of the Sierra Club.
See you there,
