Methane contamination of drinking water wells has been a common complaint among people living in gas drilling areas across the country. A 2009 investigation by ProPublica [4] revealed that methane contamination from drilling was widespread, including in Colorado [5], Ohio and Pennsylvania [6]. In several cases [7], homes blew up after gas seeped into their basements or water supplies. In Pennsylvania a 2004 accident killed three people, including a baby.

Is the 'Fracking' Disclosure Bill Any Good?
Environmentalists give mixed review to legislation that requires some disclosure of chemicals used in 'fracking' of oil and gas.
by Forrest Wilder

Bowing to growing pressure from concerned citizens and the EPA, the House tentatively passed legislation today that requires some public disclosure of the chemicals used in the controversial practice of 'fracking' of natural gas and oil wells. The bill sailed through the House with only nominal opposition. No one even asked for a vote on the record.

"Even though there have been no cases of the process causing groundwater contamination in Texas the public has stated clearly that they want to know what chemicals are being used in the hydraulic fracturing process," said Rep. Jim Keffer (R-Eastland), the author of House Bill 3328.

When are you going to turn this into the GOP War on People against Fracking?? What the frack is up with that? When steve? When is your mental illness going to take over and let your paranoid schizophrenia attempt to connect fracking to some liberal hating GOP conservative conspiracy? We're just waiting for more of the same old predictable bullshit. When steve?

Because of Republicans, Potentially harmful fracking chemicals are considered secrets

Potentially harmful fracking chemicals are considered secrets

11:00 PM, Apr. 8, 2012 |

Gas drilling companies claim that some of the fracking chemicals they use are trade secrets. According to the International Business Times website, a new Pennsylvania law, passed by the Republican administration, allows doctors to obtain the names of fracking chemicals that might be causing health problems for a patient, but they must sign a confidentiality agreement. A union of medical professionals fears that a strict interpretation of this law would prohibit the doctor from revealing the name of the chemical to the patient or to other health care professionals. Officials involved with the law say the information can be used for all medical purposes, but the confidentiality agreement "is designed to prevent proprietary information from reaching the general public ..." In other words, the public is not entitled to know the health risks to which they might be exposed.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, Ohio is considering a bill that would allow drilling companies to list trade-secret chemicals by class only, without specifying the exact chemical name. The law would allow the chemical name to be revealed to doctors and other emergency personnel, but still be kept from the public. An industry official compared these trade-secrets chemicals to the secret Coca-Cola formula, but the Coca-Cola ingredients, other than natural flavorings, still are required to be listed on the bottle.

Fracking Fluids May Migrate to Aquifers, Researcher Says
By Jim Efstathiou Jr. on May 03, 2012

Chemically treated drilling fluid can migrate through thousands of feet of rock and endanger water supplies, said a hydrologist whose research calls into question the safety of hydraulic fracturing for natural gas.

The fluids can migrate faster that previously thought, Tom Myers, a Reno, Nevada, researcher, said yesterday. His study, published in the online journal Ground Water on April 17, says fluids can reach shallow drinking-water aquifers in as little as three years.

“If contaminants reach natural fractures under pressure, the upward flow has the potential to be enhanced greatly,” Myers, an independent consultant who has worked for conservation groups and governments, said.“It can flow upward if there’s a pathway and unless it’s completely impermeable, there’s always a pathway. It’s just a question of how long it takes.”

The safety of water supplies is a key concern of critics of fracking, a drilling technique in which water, chemicals and sand are pumped deep underground to free trapped natural gas. Fracking, which has boosted supplies and sent prices to their lowest in a decade, is being investigated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for possible impacts on water.
