The Report

shakyground-coverOn Shaky Ground: Fracking, Acidizing, and Increased Earthquake Risk in California analyzes the earthquake risks associated with increased wastewater injection that would result from an expansion of fracking, acidizing, and other forms of unconventional oil production in California.

To graphically illustrate the risks, the report includes maps from an online interactive tool the FracTracker Alliance developed to show current oil and gas development, including fracked and acidized wells, active wastewater injection wells, fault lines, and communities.

Released in March 2014, On Shaky Ground: Fracking, Acidizing, and Increased Earthquake Risk in California was produced by Earthworks, The Center for Biological Diversity, and Clean Water Action.
