Why Use "Where to Turn: A Resource Directory"?

EHP’s directory resources provide valuable information for people who are already living near shale gas development (sometimes called “fracking”), those who want to learn more about shale gas development and its impacts, and people who need assistance with emergencies and health concerns. For instance, after receiving notification of a spill or blowout at a nearby well pad, impacted residents need unbiased resources for well water testing and potential contaminants of concern. Where to Turn: A Resource Directory is a comprehensive listing of information to help learn about all phases of shale gas development.
