Fracking: New Rules Aim To Bring 'Best Practices' To Public Lands

Saying that the rules would "make sure that fracturing operations conducted on public and Indian lands follow common-sense industry best practices," Interior Secretary Ken Salazar this morning issued proposed regulations that would:

— Require "public disclosure of chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing operations on federal lands."

— Ensure that "wells used in fracturing operations [on public lands] meet appropriate construction standards."

— Require operators to "put in place appropriate plans for managing flowback waters from fracturing operations."
