Do you know what fracking is? Google it. If this is what's going on in Thealka on Boyd Branch and Rt 581, we are in BIG trouble!

You bet you are evuently there will be gas in your water if you have a well. My inlaws well has had gas in it for some time it have watched it crawl through the wells from one to the next . I hope you have city water available .

What is being done about it??!! How can they, whoever they are, do this, where is the outcry??!!
I don't have a well, but it sounds like it can also pollute the air we breath, which could affect many people in the surrounding areas like Paintsville. This "fracking" is bad news! Who would I call to find out what's going on exactly? Any help would be appreciated.

It's not "fracking" it's called Fracturing. It is necessary for the production of gas resources. Without it, there would be no natural gas. Where do you think the gas in your house comes from? Or how it got there? This is nothing new. I don't know where you are getting your information but you need to find a better source. Eastern Kentucky has only two industries, coal and gas. I don't see how you could be so uninformed.

If you are concerned of the chemicals being used in the procedure, then you need to research Nitrogen Gas Facs. This is general completion procedure suited for the formations in this area. I feel sure this may ease you mind.

78% of the Earth's atmosphere is Nitrogen. The nitrogen is not the problem. It is the chemicals used in Foam and/or Acid Fracturing that are of concern. They are "flowed back" into a lined pit, vacuumed and transported off, but we all know that they don't capture it all. I really don't worry about the quality of ground water being compromised.

You might not worry about it but it is a fact of life I have seen well after well be contaminated with gas here with two gas well's close at hand .

never seen any tap water burn after strip mining - write it down - the high pressure injection of chemicals into the ground will be worse than anything coal mining ever caused

Some of you people crack me up. Dowell has been doing this same work here since back in the 60's. WTF? Yes, gas is going to communicate into an open hole water well due to natural formations. The gas companies didn't put the gas there. Did drilling a whole in the ground make the water??

Well it may be, but you can bet your ass there's no "k" in it. It's just an oilfield short term. And when people spell it wrong, it just proves they have no clue what the hell is really going on because the full term of the word Frac (Fracturing) is self explanatory.

You are so lucky, your civilization gets thier water from a river that is fed by creeks that are fed by straight pipes and mtr runoff.

...where it is then processed through a modern purification facility to render it potable for human consumption to benefit public health.
