This map-based data visualization was built as part of the CEL Climate Lab's Faces of Fracking project.
It's an examination of the extent of fracking currently taking place in California, including a breakdown of
chemical-related health effects, proximity to drinking water sources and predictions
for future fracking sites. Site includes a Spanish version.
