Oil companies want to frack Maryland
If we allow oil companies to frack across Maryland it would be an environmental nightmare for our water, air and land.
Through Environment Maryland, thousands of citizen members are teaming up with a professional staff to stand up for the places we love and the environmental values we share.
As every Marylander knows, the Chesapeake Bay — and its delicate ecosystem — is important to Maryland’s natural heritage. After months of campaigning, we helped put in place a promising new plan to crack down on the Bay’s worst polluters. This year, we built on that success, winning new rules to reduce pollution from urban developments and factory farms.
