The oil and gas industry claimed for years there's no evidence that hydraulic fracturing -- fracking -- has contaminated drinking water wells.
Our study shows that the Environmental Protection Agency concluded 25 years ago that hydraulic fracturing can -- and did -- contaminate an underground source of drinking water and that such contamination was "illustrative" of fracking's risks, blowing holes in the industry's argument.
We're tired of the oil and gas industry's propaganda. It's past time to follow up on the EPA's findings with more rigorous scientific research. Join us in calling on the EPA to look into the risks of fracking and make sure that our drinking water is safe. The oil and gas industry must be held accountable.
