Ban fracking in Monterey County - YES on Measure Z
Oil companies will spend millions to oppose our citizens' initiative to ban fracking this November. Why? Because they want unrestricted use of land and water to drill new oil wells and stimulate older wells using extreme techniques like fracking and acidizing.
These techniques can use millions of gallons of water for a single operation. The water is mixed with toxic chemicals that can harm our health, are contaminating our groundwater and aquifers, and accelerate climate change.
