Rally to Keep Maryland Frack Free
One year ago, Maryland banned fracking!
But in that year, new fracking infrastructure has been built in our state, and corporations like Dominion Energy and TransCanada are asking for permits to build more.
Fracking infrastructure in Maryland, like pipelines, export terminals and compressor stations, drive more fracking in our neighboring states that harm communities there. Pollution in the air and water from those states doesn’t stop at our borders. And the infrastructure in Maryland directly threatens the health and safety of Marylanders.
Currently, AMP Creeks Council is fighting a large compressor station that Dominion Energy wants to build to drive fracked gas from out of state to the gas refinery and export terminal in Cove Point to sell overseas. The Charles County Board of Appeals denied the zoning permit, but the Maryland Department of the Environment is moving ahead with their permit anyway. We must stop this facility!
Join us to send a message to MDE that Maryland isn’t really frack free if we aren’t fracking infrastructure free. We’ll rally in front of the MDE office on the Washington Blvd side. Bring signs or use ours. Invite your friends!
