Environment Virginia released a new report about the dangers and damages of fracking nation wide on Tuesday. It's meant to discourage fracking for natural gas in the George Washington National Forest.
The report says that more than 360,000 acres have been damaged by fracking since 2005, and generated 280 billion gallons of wastewater.
The Forest Service has yet to release whether or not they will open up the George Washington National Forest up to fracking.
