    USGS Study Shows Fracking Chemicals DO Get To Groundwater

    This mystery was solved: Scientists say chemicals from fracking wastewater can taint fresh water nearby

    Darryl Fears, May 11, 2016 (Washington Post)

    “The boom in unconventional drilling for natural gas known as fracking hit so fast that scientists have had to scramble to determine whether it’s safe for humans and the environment…But a study by the U.S. Geological Survey appears to show the millions of gallons of chemical-laced water that are injected into the wells to fracture rocks and release trapped gas and then stored in treatment facilities or special underground wells] can have an environmental impact…[Upstream from storage tanks, the waters tested normal but downstream] there were detectable levels of chemicals that commonly lace fracking waste — barium, bromide, calcium, chloride, sodium, lithium, strontium…[They appeared dramatically alter communities] of microbes that help support life…There was a lower diversity of the life forms downstream [but it will likely take another years-long study to determine the significance]…” click here for more
