"Landmark federal study revealed no evidence that chemicals from the gas drilling process contaminated drinking water aquifers in Western Pa.".

July 26, 2013 Feds sue EXXON for Polluting PA. Drinking Water with Toxic Fracking Waste.

XTO Energy is accused of polluting groundwater with fracking waste from it's natural gas well and storage facility in Hughesville, Pa.

The U.S. Dept. of Justice claims XTO Energy allowed flowback fluid and waste water to reach water supplies.

So I guess it does happen.

What an obvious pander to the industry. It's funny how the folks that actually care about PA and the environment are falsely accused of "rumor mongering and twisting of facts" when the truth is the ng industry is the real guilty party. This industry has a long and well documented history of lying, misleading, hiding facts and buying influence. When local folks are in a position to financially benefit from something, regardless of the damage it may cause and the people it may harm, they are willing to join in with this criminal industry and become complicit. That is what is happening here. The author of this piece is obviously counting the riches that may be achieved at the expense of many. What a joke this area has become. It will never cease to amaze me how someone of such low character can ever achieve a position where, in this case, they can have an editorial printed in a newspaper, even one that is so poorly respected, for good reason, as the SG. Pathetic!

And Bobbie2, when you read and believe the most obvious industry PR hacks like the Energy in Depth, you will be as uninformed as you are. Do you really think you are getting good information from these folks? If so you are delusional. I suspect you watch and believe Fox News too, huh? Foolish.
