Fracking is growing increasingly popular in the resource extraction industry, especially in areas like the Barnett Shale in North Texas. However, there is growing concern that this technique can introduce harmful substances into the groundwater either by releasing methane into the groundwater through the fracturing process or by contaminating groundwater with fluids used in the extraction process. Unfortunately, there is little scientific evidence thus far to support the public's concern about these issues.
We are a team of experienced researchers specializing in Biology and Chemistry, and we are soliciting water samples from private well owners in order to conduct a scientific study of the effects of hydraulic fracturing on private well water. Our goal is to ascertain whether or not hydraulic fracturing gas extraction activities can result in harmful substances being introduced into private well water supplies.
Here are some recent press releases for our study:
Laura Hunt, Ph.D.
Kevin Schug, Ph.D.
Zacariah Hildenbrand, Ph.D.
Brian Fontenot, Ph.D.
