A landmark federal study on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, shows no evidence that chemicals from the natural gas drilling process moved up to contaminate drinking water aquifers at a western Pennsylvania drilling site, the Department of Energy told The Associated Press.
After a year of monitoring, the researchers found that the chemical-laced fluids used to free gas trapped deep below the surface stayed thousands of feet below the shallower areas that supply drinking water, geologist Richard Hammack said...
The DOE team will start to publish full results of the tests over the next few months, said Hammack, who called the large amount of field data from the study "the real deal."

It won’t penetrate the rind of the watermelons. Nothing does once they decide something.
Good post. Thanks.
Interesting fracking study.
Anybody thats in the business knows just how rediculous these claims of fracing contaminating underground water sources really is. The claims of methane contamination are just as rediculous, methanes been seeping up from the ground long before drilling or even people were around.
It’s an actual study, instead of being “we know it does these things because we’re against it” fakes. Thanks newzjunkey.
The left is impervious to the truth; facts are meaningless.
I hear crickets churping. When will New York drop their ban?
