The Environmental Protection Agency's flawed assessment that fracking has not led to "widespread, systemic impacts on drinking water resources in the United States" must be urgently corrected, more than 200 environmental and public interest groups demanded in a letter to EPA chief Gina McCarthy on Monday. Not only did that language "seriously misrepresen[t] the findings of its underlying study," the letter charges that the EPA has "done the public a disservice" by helping promote a drilling method that has a known impact on water and air quality , and has been found to be a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.

"The Sierra Club is pleased to see the EPA's Science Advisory Board called out the agency's conclusion that there is no 'widespread, systemic' evidence that fracking contaminates drinking water for what it is: not supported by scientific facts," said the director of the organization's Dirty Fuels Initiative. The Environmental Protection Agency's Science Advisory Board, a panel of independent scientists, is calling on the agency to revise last year's much - maligned report that declared fracking to have "no widespread, systemic impacts on drinking water resources."

"This study echoes what hundreds of other scientific investigations across the nation have already shown: drilling and fracking contaminates drinking water. Had the EPA finalized its own study with similar findings on Pavillion years ago, we might have already turned the corner toward a clean energy future. Comment?
