Washington Co. welcomes horizontal shale gas fracking to the Commonwealth


    Tonight, the Washington Co. supervisors “listened” to people from 7:00-11:00 pm and then voted 6-1 to change the zoning ordinance to allow fracking. The one vote was against the breadth of the ordinance, not against well drilling and fracking.

    These supervisors have destroyed 10 years of work by people like me, in just two. This ordinance is just the latest defeat. It just feels so overwhelmingly sad.
