EPA: Hydraulic Fracturing Study – Final Assessment 2016

And this is one of the reasons why Donald Trump doesn’t like the EPA so much: EPA released the final report, “Hydraulic Fracturing for Oil and Gas: Impacts from the Hydraulic Fracturing Water Cycle on Drinking Water Resources”. Press release: WASHINGTON – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is releasing its scientific report on the …

Association of groundwater constituents with topography and distance to unconventional gas wells

Huge banner showing three glasses w/ muddy water from different fracked counties in Pennsylvania.

The outcome of this large empirical evaluation of groundwater samples up and downwards from fracked UGD wells in Pennsylvania hints to possible negative impacts of UGD on water quality, thus to pathogenic effects of this production technique. Highlights Groundwater (GW) quality was associated with distance to UGD gas wells and topography. Ca, Cl, & SO4 …

When the wind blows: tracking toxic chemicals in gas fields and impacted communities

When the Wind Blows: Tracking Toxic Chemicals in Gas Fields and Impacted Communities is a report documenting Coming Clean’s collaborative, community-based research project to monitor toxic volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in gas fields in rural Pavillion, Wyoming and to see what same VOCs are present in the bodies of people who work and live there. …

HEALTH CONSULTATION – Dimock Groundwater Site

Based on groundwater samples taken in Dimock, PA, during a completion (i. e. fracking) moratorium in 2012, which contained a plethora of health affecting chemicals, the ATSDR comes to the conclusion that consumption of that water might or does pose a significant risk for human health and that in some instances, due to its methane …

Chronic Oral Toxicity Values for Chemicals Present in Hydraulic Fracturing Fluids, Flowback and Produced Waters

Concerns have been raised about potential public health effects that may arise if hydraulic fracturing-related chemicals were to impact drinking water resources. This study presents an overview of the chronic oral toxicity values—specifically, chronic oral reference values (RfVs) for noncancer effects, and oral slope factors (OSFs) for cancer—that are available for a list of 1,173 …
