Fracking concerns ... Volker wants locals to be aware
PRINCETON — Bureau County Board member Loretta Volker is concerned about fracking, the hydraulic fracturing of underground shale rock and the regulations monitoring the activity.
Volker said she recently attended a seminar in Springfield sponsored by the Illinois Association of County Board Members and Commissioners to discuss the practice of hydraulic fracturing for natural gas or oil production, commonly called “fracking.” The purpose of the seminar was to discuss specific county concerns and advise local officials on the development of regulations governing fracking.
When she arrived at the informational meeting, there were picketers who were concerned about the environmental concerns of fracking, which is a concern she shares, Volker said.
