It is time to get back on my rant about hydraulic fracturing and the harm it is doing to our safe drinking water supply. It is the beginning of a new year and more statistics are out about what this method of tapping into natural gas is doing to the environment, most important of which is WATER!
While all the big oil companies are making big bucks, they are going to be the death of us all. The simple fact is, a lot of what they are doing to our water cannot be fixed. There is no way to filter out the crap that is seeping into our water. Water contamination is an issue in many public water supplies. Safe drinking water is becoming scarce. With all the chemicals that are getting into our water supply, every home should have a water filtration system.
I found this information and it is important that everyone sees what hydraulic fracturing is doing to our safe drinking water supply.
The rise of hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling technologies for extracting oil and gas resources has a significant impact on water availability, particularly in already water stressed regions of the country.
Ceres’ latest research on this topic, Hydraulic Fracturing & Water Stress: Water Demand by the Numbers, provides first-of-its-kind data on the various water sourcing risks facing oil and gas companies in 8 regions of intense shale development in the United States and Canada. It shines a spotlight on the volumes of water used for hydraulic fracturing by specific companies and puts regional industry water use into the context of local water stress, groundwater depletion and drought. It provides investors, lenders, and regulators recommendations for how oil and gas companies and their service providers can minimize their water demands and reduce their impacts on communities and the environment.

Water contamination needs to be dealt with. These people must stop poisoning our water supply.
