The NJ Senate passed the Fracking Waste Ban bill in an overwhelming bi-partisan 33-4 vote! Join us in Trenton to rally in support of this protection for our waterways and to ask members of the Assembly to support the measure.

Fracking waste containing radioactive elements, heavy metals, and known carcinogens has already come to New Jersey, threatening our drinking water, our environment and public health. Additionally, New Jersey is home to shale gas deposits that could be targeted in the future. Fracking waste produced here in our own state will force millions more gallons of toxic waste on our communities.
