More states are coming soon. You can also subscribe to automatic email notifications so you will know as soon as a new report is published in your area of interest.
SkyTruth applies a predictive model that shows which watersheds are likely to experience drilling activity in the near future, based on past drilling and recent permit activity. We produce maps based on this model with watersheds color-coded by predicted drilling intensity.
HotSpot Maps, for example, are used by local citizens groups concerned about the potential impacts of drilling to target areas for water quality measurement and monitoring.
