1/3 of 1% water contamination rate shows backward learning curve on fracking accidents


Screen shot 2015-06-11 at 9.45.31 AMWhere is the water table in this diagram? Sure they disclaim this chart is not to scale, but come-the-frack-on…even the industry includes water tables in their diagrams!

The Huffington Post reported of the EPA Water Assesment “..out of 11,560 gas wells drilled into a deposit in the northeastern United States since 2008, only 40 water-related incidents caused by hydraulic fracturing are listed.”

That is a .3% contamination rate….so I commented ….“A .3% water contamination rate IS substantial when U consider that water communicates with other bodies of water eventually, and the sheer buildout of fracking makes for a worrisome trend that the learning curve on preventing accidents is bowed in the wrong direction.”

Here is the meat of the executive summary…

I have no will to take on the next 999 pages of that failed EPA report.


About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
