The evidence is overwhelming that Fracking taints ground water - not to mention how much fresh water the hydraulic fracking process uses!

Really? What evidence? How can fracking fluids defy gravity and 1000feet of impermeable rock to migrate UPWARD? Drilling fluids can and are easily contained, treated and disposed. There may be a rarev

I know people who worked with a state agency that conducted environmental impact studies which confirmed the contamination.

Fracking is so far beyond sane that explaining why it's ruinously bad should be unnecessary

Why is it bad? Scientific reason? Fracking with horizontal drilling is much safer than old drilling methods.

Geological surveys and toxicology tests have proven, with very little doubt, that fracture drilling DOES cause contamination to water supplies/tables. Plus the chemicals used remain in the surrounding soil for decades!

fracking is a political tool to lower property values or force owners to move out at a huge loss in their property's value.

I see a lot of people shilling for the industry in here - making pseudo-scientific claims that 'fracking is safe' and that there is "no risk to water tables". When you see these people, you should know that they are stakeholders (or worse) shareholders, whose job it is to create a fake consensus on Fracking.

I am a water well driller. I understand the techniques of drilling and fracking. Just the fact that fracking occurs over 1000 feet BELOW an aquifer with impermeable rock between (and gravity) ensures

Because fracking takes place well below the water table. The vertical bore drilling need only be done in established professional fashion to be more than adequate.
