I predict that they’ll be saying something similar to this about fenceline residents of fracking, or worse whole cities that drank municipal water that sourced from drilling areas. I predict this because currently, mandates are NOT in place to detect or scrub fracking chemical effluents. Lets just say that I read that iodinated trihalomethane is not regulated. I fear the unregulated items could already be lurking in our municipal treated drinking water as a “frack-en-stein product” of folks trying to recycle frack water and making frack on crack. Certain types of radiation cannot be removed so lets prevent it in the first place…..too late we’re all drilled out here in Texas…is it premature to say you might wanna sell your chit and get out of the shale before it all goes to firesale status?
So one day in the near future, I predict the same ol’ frack story…they don’t screen for and can’t scrub out frack effluents from our drinking water.
