Erie Approves Fracking Moratorium
March 7th 2012

ERIE, Colo. (CBS4)- Erie’s Board of Trustees on Wednesday approved a moratorium that prevents new permits for gas and oil companies for 180 days.
A group of concerned parents are trying to educate the public about the potential danger of fracking near two schools. The group fought for the temporary hold on the process until it is deemed safe.
Fracking between the two schools, Erie Elementary School and Red Hawk Middle School, was slated to begin this summer.
“We continue to get more and more emails, more concerned momsand dads,” said Erie Rising spokeswoman Jennifer Palazzolo.
Erie Rising is a group made up of concerned parents trying to raise awareness about fracking. Three of the largest oil and gas companies are operating in the town of Erie.
