Dear Friend of the Rio Chama Watershed:
In 2014, we sent hundreds of letters to the BLM protesting plans for drilling and fracking in the Santa Fe National Forest and the Rio Chama Watershed. Despite your efforts, the BLM and U.S. Forest Service have auctioned over 20,000 acres of this pristine forest to the oil and gas industry.
Sign this petition to show that you condemn fracking in the Santa Fe National Forest.
Western Environmental Law Center attorney Kyle Tisdel filed a lawsuit in May this year challenging these leases. The sales of these leases is based on a resource management plan from 2003, a grossly outdated plan that excludes analysis of the impact of modern fracking technologies.
