Letters: No fracking near Lewisville Dam

Posted by LewisvilleTexan on 2016/2/9 5:51:28 (1012 reads)

To the editor:

The BLM has no business allowing fracking near the Lewisville Dam, which is already in trouble. A dam rupture would endanger 400,000 people.

Some folks scoff at the idea that small earthquakes threaten an earthen dam, but these folks fail to consider that soil movement damage is cumulative.

Think about when children try to dam up a stream and how the water finds and penetrates any small crack, eventually enlarging it.

Plus, right across from the fracking area is where whooping cranes spent the summer of 2013.
