Fracking in Colorado: A Citizen's Handbook on Environmental Impacts, Risks and Regulations


This guidebook, produced by the Sierra Club Rocky Mountain Chapter, will help illustrate the dangers of fracking in Colorado communities, and help use a path forward to future action to protect our health and environment for us and our families.


In recent years, there have been major changes in oil and gas extraction in Colorado, most notably the shift from traditional drilling techniques to hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Research-based concerns and uncertainties regarding the associated environmental impacts of these new techniques have led to strong opposition from many communities who refuse to expose their health, their quality of life and the environment to the risks generated by these activities.
