PSR Florida Tells Gov. Scott: Ban Fracking

PSR Florida sent a letter to the Florida Governor Rick Scott and state legislature leaders on new findings in the 5th edition of PSR’s Fracking Compendium, asking them to prohibit fracking in Florida.

“Fracking in Florida, where more than 90 percent of residents’ drink groundwater, presents many
unknowns, and characteristics unique to the state heighten several risks. Florida’s porous geology makes
it especially vulnerable to groundwater contamination, with aquifers that are highly permeable and highly
interconnected.”
