Save Our NYC Water Supply: Stop the Drilling!

Currently unfiltered drinking water serves over 8 million New York City residents giving us the cleanest, safest and most reliable drinking water in the country. However, our drinking water is being put in jeopardy by big business oil and gas companies, who want to drill for natural gas dangerously close to New York City’s upstate watershed using a process known as hydraulic fracturing, also called "hydrofracking."

This drilling process uses toxic chemicals under high pressure in water to break up rock formations deep underground, releasing the natural gas. This could lead to toxic carcinogens entering our water supply.
