Does Fracking Contaminate Water Sources? A New Fracking Study

The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences conducted a study. Researchers looked at homes in northeastern Pennsylvania and southern New York.

According to the study:

• Methane was more likely to be in wells within 1,000 feet of fracking sites.
• Propane was in 10 wells near fracking sites.

Additionally, Ethane gas was 23 times more likely to be in homes located close to fracking sites.

As fracking continues in Pennsylvania, our Pennsylvania fracking injury lawyers encourage those living near these sites to be aware of the potential risks and to contact us directly if they have been hurt.
