Here in the east, Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York, the average water table (and well) is 75 to 150 feet. The Marcellus shale averages 3000 feet below ground. the Utica shale is 3000 feet below that. Anyone who thinks they are getting their well water polluted by fracking in these deep strata is having a bad dream.

I listened to my buddy scream about fracking because he has hunting land near the Penn border. He's already figuring on a million dollar settlement.
Sometimes he's a jerk. Me, too sometimes.
