EPA Confirms Hydraulic Fracturing Hasn’t Contaminated Drinking Water In PA Town

 

Propaganda film used by Mark Ruffalo to discourage natural gas production.

Dimock, Pennsylvania has become ground zero in the environmentalists’ war against hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for natural gas. The town has been invaded by green activists like actors Mark Ruffalo and Josh Fox who are railing against “fracking” for natural gas. Ruffalo and his cronies are showing a film called “Gasland” that supposedly exposes the evils of hydraulic fracking.

Oddly enough, the EPA recently declared that Dimock’s water supply was clean and free of any contamination from local fracking sites. Scott Perry, director of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s Bureau of Oil and Gas Management has noted: “There has never been any evidence of fracking ever causing direct contamination of fresh groundwater in Pennsylvania or anywhere else.”

The hydraulic fracturing process and the safety procedures put into place are described in detail on the EnergyFromShale.org web site:

Hydraulic fracturing does not introduce new or unique environmental risks to exploration and production operations, but concerns have been raised due to the potential scale of operations where this technology is applied. Many of these concerns are genuine and the oil and natural gas industry recognizes that there needs to be a bigger conversation about the development process and the steps being taken to ensure safe operations. Some of the loudest concerns, however, that have been expressed about fracking are not authentic and have been manufactured by those opposed to all oil and natural gas development and for whom no possible safeguards exist which would make it permissible.

It is important to note that safe and responsible development doesn’t just happen, it is the result of dedicated efforts by the oil and natural gas industry, working with regulators and local communities, to alleviate potential nuisances, reduce environmental impacts, and avoid interference with existing commercial activity.

Hydraulic fracturing has become a viable source of energy for our industrialized society, which is why the Mark Ruffalos of the world want to demonize the process and shut off yet another source of fossil fuels for America.

  1. The EPA is so sorry I have trouble believing they did ANYTHING that makes sense . I wonder , what is the real story ?

    • I believe that the EPA has been infiltrated by communists and their mission is to totally control how we the people live and interact with our natural environment. We will need permission for all we do . All our actions impact our environment in some sort of way, for good or bad, and so must be strictly regulated and enforced. So has the EPA lost its legitimacy as a protector of our environment . Or is it now an agency being used to primarily control us and dictate where we live and how we live ? Also, I wonder where the UN's agenda 21, sustainable development agenda fits in with the EPA. Are they double teaming us? Oh well!

  2. Mark Ruffalo and Josh Fox most likely have no idea what fracturing is some probablt told it an enviroment hazard which they know nothing about. They are holltwood fools who have to protest against any thing and every thing. This is ttypical of the Hollywood eliite of who are mostly uneducated baffoons. IE Sher,Janeene Grafalo,Rosey O'Donnel.

  3. Well if this is just more bunch of Bolony…Drilling for Natural Gas is in no way shape or form going to hurt a water supply…There will be all kinds of safegaurds in place…You folks had better wake up…This creates Jobs people..we are not rich actors with nothing else to do..Can you dig it Sucka…Always someone has to ruin things for others..

  4. If you really want to know the real aims of the wackos who run the EPA………During the Klinton Reign, Carol Browner gave a speech in Miami, Toward the end she became rabid, she began ranting "we are going to shut America down" We are going into every business in America, And find out what substances and chemicals they are using" We will BAN THEM ALL" She began calmly enough, saying that doing studies, then holding hearings, then sponsering legislation takes too long, That speech was on NPR, After I called and tried to get a transcript AND a tape. After some time, I was refused! The following Sunday, In the Ft Myers News Press, There was mention of her speech, Even they were afraid to quote her, they only said: she gave a good speech. Embarrassingly she was origionally hired by our radical democrat governer Chiles. here in Fla.

  5. Just a Thought says:

    Has anyone taken tthe time to review any data as to what was in the water of the allegedly contaminated wells BEFORE fracking? How do we know that the contaminants they claim are from fracking weren't there before? I want to see some hard facts before I decide one way or the other.
