The truth about the dangers of vertical well drilling.

Industry people keep saying things like "Fracking has been done in NY for 70 years with NO REPORTED CASES of problems!"

Well, it's just not true.

1: Walter Hang is the authority on this -- has lots of data about problems in Western NY. Check

2: Check the problems with GASTEM's Ross#1 in Maryland NY. Contaminated Julie Soloway's drinking water well. Vertical frack job.

3: 99% of the problems in Dimock was from vertical wells hitting shallow gas.

4: Here Ingraffea has data about the failure rates of the casings of vertical wells:

6: Fred Mayer's well in Candor became contaminated after vertical well drilling in nearby Spencer.

7: Check this story from NY Times in 1986

There are many other cases. This is just to get you started on your research.

Hope this is helpful.

May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)
