Anti-Fracking Resolution by Miami-Dade County

In the last six weeks we’ve provided analysis of the fracking bans in New York and Denton, Texas. Further on the anti- fracking front,  the Miami-Dade County Commission passed a resolution last week urging the Florida Legislature to adopt Senate Bill 166 (filed by Sen. Soto and Sen. Bullard) or similar legislation that would prohibit hydraulic fracturing (also known as “fracking”) and to take measures to safeguard the water supply and environment through better regulation of oil drilling methods and extraction techniques.   Dr. Hal  Wanless of the University of Miami testified in support of the anti-fracking resolution, noting that Florida’s highly permeable limestone geology renders its drinking water supply vulnerable to contamination from fracking activities.
