Drilling & Fracturing
GAO report finds no evidence that fracing contaminates groundwater.
A report was released from the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) pertaining to hydraulic fracturing. The report, entitled “Information on Shale Resources, Development, and Environmental and Public Health Risks,” used existing research to assess the risks associated with shale development and hydraulic fracturing.

It is well known that many people oppose hydraulic fracturing, believing it to be responsible for contaminating groundwater; however, like many documents that have preceded it, the GAO’s report finds no evidence to back allegations that hydraulic fracturing fluids in shale formations migrate into the groundwater.
