Over 3,000 new oil and gas wells were drilled in Colorado last year, most of them using the controversial method called hydraulic fracturing or "fracking."
If you are concerned about the costs and risks of fracking, the League of Women Voters (LWV) of Larimer County will present an informative meeting and video screening at the Harmony Library Community Room.
Monday evening, May 7th 2012
4616 South Shields, Fort Collins
Harmony Library - Community Room
TIME: 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Speakers knowledgeable about fracking will answer your questions at the meeting, organized by the LWV's all-volunteer Sustainability Team. Members of the panel include Jeannette Hillery, LWV member from Boulder County, and co-chair of a larger Fracking Study underway by the LWV of Colorado.
Eric Wilkinson, General Manager of the Northern Water Conservancy District, will also be on hand to answer questions about the impact of oil and gas development on Colorado's water resources. Former Fort Collins Mayor, Barbara Rutstein, will moderate the forum.
