This article looks interesting:
Mr. Fenton said he thought he had dodged a
bullet until about three years ago, when his tap water began occasionally
fizzing and smelling like petroleum. And even though Encana is giving him
drinking water, Mr. Fenton said he and his family still bathe in dirty water.
But here on the front lines of the battle over fracking, which has become
an increasingly popular technique to extract previously unobtainable reserves
of oil and gas, no conclusion is yet definitive.
After an outcry from
Wyoming?s governor, Matt Mead, and the energy industry that the federal
report was premature and inconclusive, more testing was conducted by the
United States Geological Survey and is being processed. The E.P.A. is also in
the midst of collecting additional water samples for study.
Encana Oil and
Gas (U.S.A.) Inc., which bought the Pavillion gas field in 2004 and operates
about 125 gas wells in the area, is already providing jugs of drinking water
for Mr. Locker and 20 other households. It is unclear whether Encana will
defray any of the cost of the cistern water.
Renny MacKay, a spokesman for
Mr. Mead, said the governor was committed to figuring out a long-term fix for
about 20 homes whose water was found to contain contaminants while the
source of the pollution is studied.

A draft report by the Environmental Protection Agency,
issued in December, appeared to confirm their concerns, linking chemicals in
local groundwater to gas drilling.
For the last few years, a small group of
farmers and landowners scattered across this rural Wyoming basin have
complained that their water wells have been contaminated with chemicals from
a controversial drilling technique known as hydraulic fracturing, or
As a matter of fact, it is urgent to focus on the customizing of the water with great attention
and the collaboration with the wave with great attention and the concept of
the water quality management before analyzing the hydrogen and the concept
of the water data management;
As a matter of fact, a new approach is necessary to describe the treatment of the water with great
care in the particular case of the hydrogen
