Re: Gas fracking

Frac jobs are not a new technology. PA has been frackin SHALLOW conventional wells between 3000 to 5000 foot deep( closer to the surface then marcellus wells) since most of you have been in diapers.... this isnt a new technology.. I discredited that whole video with the opening commentary.

Re: Gas fracking

I wonder how many of these folks claiming their well went bad, had water tests done prior to gas drilling for a baseline to judge from?

Re: Gas fracking

Without a doubt some wells have been contaminated by Marcellus fracturing. However, many people don't know what was in their well water prior to natural gas exploration. For example: My neighbor had his well tested by the local Cooperative Extension (for free) about eight years ago. The test results came back with dangerous levels of arsenic (supposedly naturally occuring). None of the neighbors wells had it, just his. Without that test he and his family would still be drinking tainted water today and potentially blaming any health issues in the future on fracturing.

The point being, without a proper baseline being established prior to a problem the root(source) of the problem can be largely speculative.

Re: Gas fracking

I just wonder about it sometimes because you never see anyone in the news shouting from the roof tops and waving prior test results......

Re: Gas fracking

After a well here was fracked one well cap got blown off its casing he and 2 nieghbors have tanks setting in thier yards.And have vent stacks out of thier well casing sticking up in the air about 15 feet.But why can the nieghbor across the road still use his well??

Fracturing has been going on since the 1890's.

Re: Gas fracking

no matter when Facturing had started- ppl are scared of the word frac... PERIOD....groundwater contamination is something that can be completely avoided with a good casing and cementing job...
