Danger to Our Groundwater: Fracking in ABQ Basin (April 3 Albuquerque NM)

  • Vincent E Griego Chambers 1 Civic Plz NW Albuquerque, New Mexico 87102 (map)

Hydraulic fracking in the highly fractured shale of the Albuquerque Basin poses a unique threat to our groundwater. The geology of the Albuquerque Basin is importantly different from that of the Permian and the San Juan Basins.

Geologist Don Phillips' presentation will clearly illustrate how this geologic difference makes hydraulic fracking so dangerous to our drinking water and our future. Phillips' presentation has already been seen by hundreds of concerned citizens and convinced many of them that hydraulic fracking cannot be safely done in the Albuquerque Basin. Come see for yourself.

The Presentation is sponsored by Albuquerque City Councilor Pat Davis and Bernalillo County Commissioner Maggie Hart Stebbins.

Attend at the Vincent E. Griego Council Chambers, basement level of the Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Government Center, 1 Civic Plaza NW, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87102. The city council chambers holds 250 people so please attend and bring your friends.
