One of the many problems with fracking is safely getting rid of the contaminated water it generates. So, obviously, offshore fracking operations would have to make provisions for handling the large quantities of toxic water they generate.
Like dumping it in the Santa Barbara Channel.
According to the Center for Biological Diversity, oil rig operators have federal permits to dump more than nine billion gallons of fracking wastewater into California's ocean waters each year. That's enough wastewater to fill more than 100 stadiums the size of the Rose Bowl brim-full of toxic wasteLink
Out of sight, out of mind, right?
