The Fracking Industry: Injuries, Fatalities, and Health and Environmental Damage
Wetzel County has been the site of numerous injuries to workers in the fracking industry over the past few years. As one of the most mined areas in West Virginia, we are witnessing increasing damage to the health of Wetzel County’s residents and environmental degradation (which, in turn, affects the health of the people).
As hydrofracturing (fracking) continues to boom all over West Virginia, we have seen traffic injuries and fatalities rise, as well as industrial injuries at and near the well pads. Some of the impacts of increased fracking in the area are presented on the following website.
Along with the rise in fracking in New Martinsville, Wetzel County, and the surrounding areas, we have seen traffic fatalities increase by 42%, as well as disproportional amounts of injuries, damages to real estate, roads, and waterways.
The large trucks that are being used by the fracking industry have not only contributed to more vehicular injuries and fatalities, they are also contributing to more severe injuries when they do occur. When the immense trucks that carry heavy fracking materials fail to negotiate the roadways according to traffic safety laws, they destroy or damage the safety guardrails to such an extent that they are no longer able to sufficiently protect future travelers on the roadways of Wetzel County and surrounding areas.
