Water is more precious than oil or gas.
The way they do it now is safer than before. It would bring a lot of jobs to the moore county area where there are so many people out of work.
"Congress exempted fracking from federal regulation under the Safe Drinking Water Act in 2005 after heavy lobbying by oil and gas companies, meaning that companies are not required to disclose their chemical mixtures under federal law. Companies can and do refuse to disclose the chemical mix that they inject into the ground.
Gas and chemicals can stray from the target drilling site. In a 2011 peer-reviewed, scientific study, Duke University scientists found, on average, methane concentrations 17 times above normal in samples taken from water wells near gas drilling sites that involve fracking, a level that experts consider hazardous."
Since Moore County sits on the Middendorf Aquafer and we have a well on our property I would like to know the answer to the seven questions asked by these two Duke Scientists.
