When you screw with the aquifers, you mess up the drinking water
Fracking involves injecting water, sand and chemicals under high pressure into the ground to force open channels in deep tight sand and rock formations so that oil and gas can be more easily recovered. Fracking has been used for decades, but improvements in the process and new drilling techniques have led to its use in unlocking heretofore large, unrecoverable natural gas reserves.
