As gas drilling pollution of water wells and potential drinking water sources including the Delaware River Basin in the Marcellus shale region continue to gather scrutiny, a three (3) year EPA study has confirmed “fracking” as the source of pollution of drinking wells in the state of Wyoming. The study notes that the gas wells at the polluted site were “shallow” wells and this may have contributed to pollution of the water used by homeowners. The study notes that gas supplies in the Marcellus shale regions of Pennsylvania are very deep; over one mile below the water tables. Environmental groups point to the study as supporting their concerns especially for disclosure of the nature of chemicals used in the fracking process. Gas drilling companies cite trade secrets in not disclosing the chemicals used.
