The EPA reaffirms test results that linked tainted water in Pavillion, Wyo., with hydraulic fracturing. Encana (ECA), the company that leases the natural gas field there, continues to maintain the pollutants are naturally occurring and not the result of drilling. The December draft report was the first U.S. government finding to link water contamination with fracking.

    This is a no brainer. We don't need any study to show this but certainly it is nice to see the fda recognize the obvious; the obvious that the industry does not want to recognize.

     

    We get clean water from a complex but natural ecosystem filtering process. Hydraulic fracking ruptures and contaminates this process.

     

    This is not a political issue but is a common sense issues that affects all of us. We all need clean water and air. We cannot live without clean water or air. The one thing that trumps any energy imperative is access to clean water, air, and food sources.

     

    We are jeopardizing free access to clean water and air...likely "they" want to commoditze that too. We should be very worried.

    Didn't the EPA get the memo? President Obama ordered a full-court press for getting more domestic oil and gas--I heard him say it at the first debate!
