Ever-Changing Mood

Record #:
Sanford, NC once were in favor of allowing fracking in their town, but now oppose the drilling. Residents are opposed to compulsory pooling which would allow corporations to drill on their land even if they oppose the drilling. Residents are concerned about property rights and keeping their water supply safe. Fracking may still continue as a moratorium on the practice has been lifted by the state and the Mining and Energy Commission is preparing draft regulations which could permit fracking in early 2015.
