Natural Gas Fracking in Virginia: Prospects and Perils


    I thought I'd pass this along for anyone in the Annandale area. I saw Dusty Horwitt's presenation on this in Arlington back in late January. It was very informative and I strongly recommend it!

    Join me Tuesday April 22 in Annandale, VA

    Dear Lowell,

    Join me to learn about the potential for fracking in Virginia at Northern Virginia Community College’s Annandale Campus Green Festival.

    Among the issues I will discuss is the U.S. Forest Service’s impending decision on whether to allow fracking and horizontal drilling for natural gas in the George Washington National Forest.

    Major D.C. area water providers, local governments, and conservation organizations have warned that fracking in the forest could threaten a range of resources–including the headwaters of the Potomac River, the D.C. area's major drinking water source.
