In this edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, research fellow Isaac Orr and Jackie Stewart, from Energy in Depth discuss a recent study conducted by the University of Cincinnati which found fracking has not contaminated water supplies. But here’s a twist, the study was actually funded by environmental groups who are not pleased with the results.
This may be one reason why the study may not be readily available for downloading from the University’s website. Orr and Stewart talk about the scientifically sound methodologies used to complete the study and provide insight into the importance of baseline testing. The study reaffirms the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s findings that fracking is not contaminating groundwater supplies.
