Never heard of any, nor is there a lot of oil and natural gas that I am aware of. Coal mining however is still here, but really most coal mines are up in Kentucky. If there is fracking here it is on a small scale.

Fortunately, not much fracking has started yet in Tennessee and hopefully it will never. Fracking is very destructive to the environment.

Tennessee and fracking

Attachment is a snapshot of verified active fracking sites across the USA. Then a snapshot in of fracking near Odessa. Then a zoomed in pic showing active and abandoned sites.

Things Unseen:
The map shows "fracking" sites, but what goes unnoticed is the waste water injection sites. Once they fracture a vein or pocket, they pump the water out. That water is taken else where to be disposed. "Deep-Well Injection" is the current preferred method of disposing of fracking solutions.That map shows where they fractured, but not where they dumped the toxic water. I know of at least one injection site in Northern Illinois that was suspected of causing drinking water issues but is not on that map.


Deep-Wells are suppose to be safe. They drill well below the surface and drinking water levels. However, cracks, leaks, and fissures can lead to the water escaping into the upper layers. Once that happens, you are drinking benzene and diesel fuel.
