Fracking Industry and Illegal Dumping of Wastewater

Hosted by

In Kern County, the oil business is even bigger than agriculture, and using water for fracking is a familiar practice there. Waste-water, containing chemicals is then injected into the ground. In July, the State Water Resources Board shut down nine of eleven injection wells because the EPA suspected violations of the Clean Water Act.
