Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking) and Water Quality
The EPA has released their draft report on the impact of Fracking (Hydraulic Fracturing) operations and drinking water. In their press release, the EPA states:
“Assessment shows hydraulic fracturing activities have not led to widespread, systemic impacts to drinking water resources”
Our own Bruce Entwisle, President of Harry Miller Corp, says, “The EPA, which is certainly no friend of industry, recently deemed fracking to be not harmful to ground waters. Unfortunately, there have been deceitful videos circulated purporting to show gas permeating wells as a result of fracking; these videos were made by environmental groups opposed to drilling of any sort, and they made great theatre regardless of their veracity. In reality, hydraulic fracturing is done significantly deeper than the water table, or aquifers. Stainless steel casings that do not rust are driven through the water tables so that no leakage occurs during the process. We’re gratified that the EPA has spoken and hope that the public at large recognizes this boon to our economy that manifests itself in jobs and lower energy costs for all Americans.”
Harry Miller Corp provides its support for the Fracking industry, and will continue to provide top quality Acid Inhibitors for Fracking processes and other custom solutions for this and other industries.
