I was told someone in the area wants to drill in our area. Does anyone know about it? If you want to know what can happen when they let Fracking for oil in our town/area watch the documentary at the website from "Top Documentary Films" and find the "Fracking in America" film. Will the State and local officials allow them to ruin our water & property values?

how deep is your well? the natural gas wells are on average 7500 feet your residential well is probaly 60 if there was a fracture leading to water they would only drill 60 sounds like a waste of money people are just ignorant about drilling practices

Yup roughneck here and today's drilling is way more Eco friendly and higher standards then back in the day your well water will be fine and as far as property value your wrong... Price will go up if there's good stuff down there

You'd have to watch the film to see how it gets to the peoples water wells. The casings in the holes are some the problems, quality of parts they use also. If you haven't watched the film your not informed as you should be. National Geographic also has a article in this months magazine.
