According to the New York Times, nearly 80 municipalities have passed ordinances to ban or oppose fracking methods due to their concern that fracking chemicals and acids may impact our fragile ecosystems, unique geology, and water supply. BAPA hosted a lunch and learn-style workshop on September 8th to discuss this important topic with State Representatives, leading scientists, and Broward County officials.
