Fracking Legislation

Fracking Legislation Lawyer in Pennsylvania

The awareness of the dangers that fracking can cause is increasing with every passing day. From numerous environmentalists to skilled scientists, everyone has been coming up with various proofs that contamination in the groundwater as well as in air is posing a serious threat to the whole community in Pennsylvania as well as the rest of the United States. In order to offer them a relief, the state government has introduced the fracking legislation. This can be used by the companies too to protect themselves.

Congress passed the legislation in 2005, which exempted the companies for oil and gas from complying The Clean Water Act during fracking. As a result, the boom can be seen in the oil and gas industry which in turn has increased fracking in the whole state. Though it is becoming beneficial for the economy of Pennsylvania, the people around are realizing the risks that has been brought along. The constant practice of fracking has caused the contamination of water, soil, and air which is seriously affecting the health of many people. Needless to say, fracking can cause various accidents in the gas pipeline as well as during the machinery use as well. So, if you or your loved ones are suffering from any accident due to fracking, you must get in touch with a professional Washington, PA accident lawyer to secure your right to compensation.

Since the risk has become quite a notable issue for the whole country, the government has started releasing various rules and regulations to control the pollution and contamination due to fracking. Obama government had proposed a law to ensure safety by taking care of the most serious issues including weak good casing. Weak good leakage is one of the biggest reasons for water pollution. So, this is definitely a big step towards better future. However, this proposal affects only the wells that are situated in the land managed by the Bureau of Land Management. But, the majority of wells are privately owned. That is why more stringent laws are necessary to fight this issue.

The bill of FRAC Act has been pending in the Congress for quite a long time due to political complexities. However, this law would have managed the issue of fracking quite easily by imposing the federal clean water regulations on the companies. The Environment Protection Agency was supposed to overlook the matter so that the water remained safe for everyone. However, passing off this bill is a big question now. Until then, when you are dealing with serious injuries due to fracking, consider consulting a Washington, PA injury lawyer immediately to secure your rights.
