Fracking linked to water contamination in scientific study

New Duke University Study Shows Shale Gas at Hazardous Concentrations in Water Wells Near Fracking

Fracking for gas

A new study from Duke University, just released Monday, shows that wells close to active fracking operations in Pennsylvania and New York are contaminated with methane—and several lines of evidence say that it’s actually from the deep shales being fracked, NOT from shallower biologically produced methane. The closer the wells are to the active fracking location, the more likely the contamination is to be at hazardous–even flammable–levels.
