Merits and Ramifications of the BLM Fracking Rule

On March 20, 2015, the Bureau of Land Management issued a final rule regulating hydraulic fracturing on federal and Indian lands. BLM developed the regulations over four years and received 1.5 million comments during the process. The new regulations will require public disclosure of chemicals used in fracking fluids, higher standards for storing water produced by wells, and the provision of more geologic information in an effort to decrease the risk of cross-well contamination. Join Environmental Law Institute for a discussion about the rule’s ramifications when it goes into effect on June 24, 2015.
