YOU CAN ACT

An out-of-state oil company with a questionable track record wants to export its toxic fracking wastewater into Nebraska, dumping 80 truckloads carrying 10,000 toxic barrels daily into a disposal well in Sioux County.

This would transfer the risks of its toxic pollution onto Nebraska farmers and ranchers and our land and precious water resources, such as the Ogallala Aquifer a major source of irrigation for midwest farms..

Help us protect our lives and resources: Please sign the petition: Don’t frack our water.
