New PA study shows fracking doesn't damage aquifers
Pennsylvania State Study Shows Hydraulic Fracturing Does Not Harm Aquifers or Water Supplies
Yet another study, this one out of Pennsylvania, shows definitively that hydraulic fracturing does not damage rural aquifers or water wells. The study comes from The Center for Rural Pennsylvania - a bipartisan legislative agency serving as a resource and research arm for rural policy in the Pennsylvania Assembly and Senate. The study says, in part:
Post-Drilling Water Quality
Analyses of the data from both Phase 1 and Phase 2 water wells generally showed a lack of statistically significant changes in water quality parameters due to Marcellus drilling or fracking activity when comparing pre- to post-drilling elements of water quality.
I've downloaded the original study in PDF format and it is available here:
