EPA Study Confirms Fracking's Potential Impact on Drinking Water Resources

December 14, 2016

 

When the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) hesitated to confirm that fracking could negatively impact drinking water, the unconventional gas drilling industry promoted the draft version of a report that has just been finalized.

 

The final version of the five-year EPA Study of Hydraulic Fracturing for Oil and Gas and Its Potential Impact on Drinking Water Resources seems to have shed the overshadowing of the industry and includes more than 900 pages of known dangers posed to drinking water from fracking activities and areas in need of further research.

 

This report substantiates some of the concern expressed by the Pennsylvania Medical Society’s resolution calling for a moratorium on new drilling, a statewide health impact assessment and further research.
