OAKLAND — Alameda County leaders voted in favor of banning fracking Tue afternoon making it the first county in the Bay Area, and the 5th county in Ca. to do so.

Karen White, with the Alameda County Against Fracking coalition, commented she’s relieved by the decision to ban hydraulic fracturing in the county.

“We’ve taken a step that will protect everybody in Alameda County, especially our kids and grandchildren, from toxic chemicals,” White said.

Santa Cruz County is among the counties that have already banned fracking, while Monterey County citizens will vote on a fracking ban on the Nov ballot.
