Description
 
The U.S. has vast reserves of natural gas that are commercially viable as a reult of advances in horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing technologies, which enable greater access to gas in rock formations deep underground. However, concerns have increased about the potential human health and environmental impacts of hydraulic fracturing, especially for drinking water. In response to public concern Congress requested that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) conduct scientific research to examine the relationship between hydraulic fracturing and drinking water resources. In 2011, the EPA began research under its Plan to Study the Potential Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing on Drinking Water Resources. This report describes 18 EPA research projects underway and presents the progress made as of Sept. 2012 for each of the projects. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
