The citizens of Denton requested revisions to the lax drilling ordinances the industry developed for Denton.

The city refusedĀ all request for a stronger and more protective gas well drilling ordinances. This left the citizens of Denton no other choice than to seek a ban on hydraulic fracturing. Until hydraulic fracturing can be proven safe then it should not be allowed near our homes, schools, hospitals, churches, or parks.
