Fracking Regulatory Contacts by State

Hydraulic fracturing, often called fracking, fracing or hydrofracking, is the process of using fluid to fracture a rock layer to release natural gas and oil from rock formations deep below the earth's surface. Environmental and health concerns include contamination of groundwater, air quality, the migration of gases and hydraulic fracturing chemicals to the surface, and the potential mishandling of waste. State regulatory contacts are listed below for more information.
