About DrillingMaps.comWas inspired after listening to multiple groups of parents tell stories about sick kids living in close proximity to oil and natural gas drilling / fracking locations. The maps aim to document health and safety concerns by residents all over the World in an effort to provide more transparency about the risks associated with living near oil drilling operations. These maps are to serve as a platform for people to express their safety concerns about oil and gas drilling operations that may be jeopardizing their health and safety. Please review our presentation slides below for details on how we collect, publish and share information on our map database.
Purpose of the MapIt has been well documented that there are many safety implications of living near oil & gas drilling / fracking operations. However, many energy companies still claim that these areas are safe and are not the cause of health related concerns many residents living near these sites are experiencing. Our map raises the awareness of various issues caused by living in close proximity to energy drilling / fracking operations.
Lack of TransparencyEnergy consumption is critical to our well being and life. However, the risks are still unknown about living near these locations and the safety implications they impose. it is our objective to document health concerns on a map and leave it up to the scientists and readers to make their own conclusions.
