Issues with Geothermal Fracking
Note: On October 16, 2013, the Hawai`i County Council passed a bill banning hydraulic fracturing.
On November 6, 2013, the bill was approved and signed into law by Mayor Kenoi.
This page introduces some issues associated with enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) also referred to as geothermal fracking. There are presently three resources on this page: (1) an introductory presentation (available both as a slideshow, below, and as a downloadable document), (2) a five page document summarizing geothermal fracking (3) and a more concise one page summary. (Slideshow controls are at the bottom of this page.) See also this site's Fracking links pages.
