This section of our website is a collection of online and physical resources for people who are interested in the topic of unconventional natural gas and oil extraction, commonly referred to as “fracking.” If you don’t see a resource listed here or in the Endnote Library, please let us know.

In the event of an emergency, such as a spill or release of hazardous material, including oil, to the environment, citizens are advised to call the National Response Center at 1-800-424-8802.
