Ban Fracking in Sacramento County Now

Ban Fracking in Sacramento County Now

Petition Text

Tell the Sacramento County Board of Supervisors that it is time to ban fracking in Sacramento County.

Why is this important?

Governor Cuomo of New York has declared a statewide ban on fracking. Local citizen-led initiatives have helped ban fracking in Mendocino and San Benito counties in California; Athens, Ohio; Mora, New Mexico; and Denton, Texas. Communities across the United States and world are saying NO to this environmentally disastrous method of extracting fossil fuels from the land. In California we have the added problem of drought conditions. The millions of gallons of water used in fracking is an incredible waste of this precious resource.

It is time for The Sacramento County Board of Supervisors to take action and ban fracking in Sacramento County now.
