							The increasing pace of natural gas development threatens rivers and streams that provide clean drinking water, habitat for fish and wildlife, and recreational opportunities, such as fishing and boating. Natural gas development enjoys exemptions from keystone environmental laws, such as the Safe Drinking Water Act and the Clean Water Act, exemptions not provided to other industries.

American Rivers supports requiring the natural gas industry, in concert with the rest of the energy industry, to adhere to adequate and enforceable measures to protect our rivers, streams, and groundwater from pollution. We also believe particularly sensitive places should remain off limits to energy development to preserve our highest quality clean waters.

We must balance development needs with adequate environmental protections for clean water and healthy watersheds. In the push to develop domestic sources of energy nationwide, the direct and cumulative impacts to water quality in streams and rivers have been largely ignored and accountability for environmental degradation has been lax at best. Unchecked by adequate safeguards, natural gas production has the potential to pollute clean water for millions of people. We have already experienced instances of surface and groundwater pollution, air pollution, soil contamination, habitat fragmentation, and erosion from extracting gas from shale using fracking where proper safeguards were not in place or followed.
