Since 1978 the State has received on average $600 million to $800 million annually for clean water programs that are administered by the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund.

California Fracking: High Risk and a Real Crisis of Confidence - by Tomas DiFiore
“Make the distinction between fracking for oil and fracking for gas. The oil industry is running around saying, those are the problems you have with gas development in the east, but the regulations that you put into place called 'fracking' shouldn't matter that the technology changes, you don't know that they may be fracking for gas in ten years around here. The expansion of fracking brings with it new challenges.” Senator Bill Monning

Natural Gas Supply Outpacing Demand Growth - Ban Exports of LNG - by Tomas DiFiore
How can the US “high-volume high pressure” production of (fracked) LNG be the cheapest on the global market? Maybe it's because the water is free. The sand is free. Ban fracking sand mining now! Sand mining for purposes of fracking will likely become a controversial issue this Legislative session (2013) And the 'fracking fluid' is probably leftover industrial waste, a liability turned to asset. It's the Tao Of The Corporate Way. We Oppose Unless They Disclose (Monterey slogan)
