Interactive Map: Fracking Across the United States

Posted by Content Coordinator on Friday, June 8th, 2012

EARTHJUSTICE

The country is in the midst of an unprecedented gas drilling boom—brought on by a controversial technology called hydraulic fracturing or “fracking.” Along with this fracking-fueled gas rush have come troubling reports of poisoned drinking water, polluted air, mysterious animal deaths, industrial disasters and explosions. We call them “Fraccidents.”

The map below displays a sampling of some of the high profile incidents related to the country’s gas drilling boom. Each of the symbols below represents a fraccident. Click on any of the highlighted states below to learn more about some of the fraccidents in that state, details on the fracking issues facing the state, and resources for getting involved in your local fight against fracking.
