Nonprofit organization Our Santa Fe River (OSFR) is asking commissioners in seven counties, including Suwannee County, in the Santa Fe River Basin to adopt local resolutions in support of a statewide hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, ban. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), fracking is the well stimulation practice of injecting high pressure liquid mixtures, including water and acid, into coal beds or shale rock to force open fissures and extract oil or natural gas. It involves both vertical and horizontal drilling.
