Tell PA DEP: Protect public health and ban “forever chemicals” from fracking

A new health study shows that the fracking industry is using "forever chemicals" like PFAS in their drilling processes -- here in Pennsylvania and across the country. Perfluoroalkyl substances or “PFAS” are used in many industrial processes and consumer products. They never break down in our environment and they’re linked to multiple types of cancer, infertility, autoimmune diseases and a laundry list of other health problems.

Using PFAS in fracking operations adds another dangerous contaminant to an already long list of toxic chemicals used in drilling and fracking, which ends up in our waterways and drinking water. Tell the PA-DEP they should be protecting us from PFAS -- not allowing frackers and other polluters to use these dangerous chemicals.
