Update on Fracking in Illinois (November, 2017)
In another huge win for people power, Woolsey Operating Company, LLC has decided to abandon its fracking proposal and withdraw its application for a wastewater injection well in Illinois.
The company’s decision to not frack Illinois comes after fracking activists held multiple anti-fracking rallies across the country, submitted over 5,000 comments to the Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) and issued even more complaints about the fracking permit approval process.
IDNR under Governor Rauner granted their permits to Woolsey Energy to frack in White County, Illinois. (Summary by Jackie Filson, Food & Water Watch)
