Ban Fracking Waste in Connecticut!

Ban Fracking Waste!

On May 9th, the Connecticut House of Representatives voted 141-6 to ban fracking waste from gas wells. The bill will now go to the Senate, where a vote could happen as early as Monday, May 15.

There is no safe way to treat toxic, radioactive fracking waste — and disposing of it here would threaten the health of Connecticut families.

Drilling and fracking a single shale well can produce millions of gallons of toxic wastewater and hundreds of tons of potentially radioactive solid waste. And while fracking itself isn't happening in Connecticut, waste from other states is a very real danger.

Take action below and tell your senator to keep toxic fracking waste out of Connecticut!

Dear [Senator],



In order to protect the safety of our families and communities, we need to continue to keep fracking waste from entering the state. I urge you to protect Connecticut by supporting HB 6329 and strengthening it into a complete statewide ban on fracking waste.

Sincerely,
