The ‘F’ word

The simple cure for fixing the ground water invasions of natural gas and fracturing fluids and gases is the following.

I have invented the TOP SIDE COLLIDER a product processes and methods to be used during the first drilling of a well. A special proprietary water sensitive bonding agent is used to bind to the pipe the drilled hole and the fresh water sands.

Once done, the fresh water sands will be safe from the ‘F’ word or fracturing process used today.

I don't think that there is too much concern over pollution of the ground water in remote parts of Wyoming but this is in the town of Pavillion. I also think that the key here is that this is a milestone where the EPA has come together for the first time to blame fracking on ground water pollution. This may open up a can of worms in other locations where legal representatives are just waiting for their opportunity to make a buck.
