Fort Worth Citizens Against Neighborhood Drilling Ordinance

". . .we are learning that a community engaged is a community empowered."
Terry Tempest Williams

FwCanDo was formed by a small group of concerned citizens in September 2005 in response to natural gas drilling activities encroaching on our neighborhoods. We believe that gas drilling and related activities are a threat to people, property and wildlife.


We are concerned, among other things, with the following:


  • Property values
  • Neighborhood depreciation
  • Air pollution
  • Water pollution
  • Soil contamination
  • Noise and light pollution
  • Health and safety
  • Increased crime and traffic congestion
