EPA to Provide Clean Drinking Water to Families Near Fracking Sites in Pennsylvania

Comments Off on EPA to Provide Clean Drinking Water to Families Near Fracking Sites in Pennsylvania

In a move that seems to admit the danger of hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) to ground water reserves, the EPA has decided to provide clean drinking water to four families in Dimock, Pennsylvania who say their water supply has been contaminated by a hydraulic fracturing well owned by Cabot Oil and Gas Corporation . The EPA will also test the water supply of 60 homes in the Dimock area for harmful chemicals. This investigation comes on the tails of the announcement that the EPA found high levels of fracking chemicals in drinking water wells in Wyoming near hydraulic fracturing sites. In both cases the gas companies involved vehemently deny the charges but it seems the EPA, led by administrator Lisa Jackson, will be forging ahead hoping to find some truth by testing the water themselves .

Image: Signal International After Hurricane Katrina, Signal International lost a lot of its workforce. To fill in the newly missing spots, it had a recruiter to import workers from India: workers who were told they’d come to America for a great job and be given permanent residency for themselves and their families—in exchange for a $20,000 recruitment fee to cover travel costs, visa, etc. That was how about 500 workers made their way (though the amount of the fee varied) to the U.S.
