Navajo Resist Fracking near Chaco Canyon

Fracking pollution threatens Navajo ancestral lands and Chaco Canyon                                    

***UPDATE***

The rights for drilling on 843 acres in the Chaco Canyon sold for $3 million on 1/27/2017. The sale of the parcels had been postponed on three occasions since 2012.

BLM spokeswoman Donna Hummel says the agency will not issue the parcels to the winning bidders until several protests filed in connection with the sale are resolved.

Information:

A fracking boom in the San Juan Basin has spilled a methane cloud into the atmosphere large enough for NASA to detect from space, is polluting the underground aquifer with fracking chemicals and is desecrating Navajo/Diné sacred sites. The Pinon Pipeline would deliver fracked gas from the San Juan Basin to the railroad in either Milan or Prewitt.
