Fracking Activities in San Joaquin Valley

CPM has filed cases on behalf of farmers in Kern County whose crops have been destroyed due to the release of waste products from fracking activities by oil companies. In connection with their investigation of these issues, CPM has also focused on the larger issue of the impact of how waste from fracking activities has impacted drinking water reserves from below ground aquifers in the region. Water agencies and the farming community in the region are vitally concerned over these issues given the severe drought that persists in California.
