Muskegon County farm target for fracking well

by

RAVENNA (WKZO) -- The issue of hydraulic fracturing or "fracking" is making its way into Muskegon County.

The state Department of Environmental Quality has received a request for a fracking permit for a farm located near Ravenna.  While hydraulic fracturing is credited for helping create more domestic natural gas production, the procedure is often opposed because of environmental concerns.

The well proposed for Muskegon County would use two-million gallons of local water to fracture underground shale and bring any natural gas below to the surface.
