Fracking is a dirty process by which energy companies use hydraulic pressure to crack open underground rock to release natural gas. While there are benefits to burning natural gas over other energy sources like oil and coal, this method poses extreme danger to our water sources - meaning extreme risks to human health.
Both the mixture of chemicals used to break the rock and the released natural gas can contaminate underground aquifers and the toxic waste water of this process can harm local water quality. However, current law exempts fracking from the laws that protect drinking water.
