On April 11, the law school at the University of California, Berkley released its report Regulation of Hydraulic Fracturing in California: A Wastewater and Water Quality Perspective. The report found that the state’s current law and past proposals do not provide enough oversight of hydraulic fracturing to protect surface water from contamination. Recommendations put forward by the report include creating tax exemptions to encourage wastewater recycling, monitoring the disposal of fracking waste, requiring a 30 day advance notice of hydraulic fracturing, and requiring companies to disclose chemicals including ones considered trade secrets.
