  • Leaky wells, not fracking, taint water

    The drilling procedure called fracking didn't cause much-publicized cases of tainted groundwater in areas of Pennsylvania and Texas, a new study finds. Instead, it blames the contamination on problems in pipes and seals in natural gas wells. After looking at dozens of cases of suspected contamination, the scientists focused on eight hydraulically fractured wells in those states, where they ...

  • High Polonium-210 Levels Found in Nevada Wells

    RENO, Nevada, August 6, 2007 (ENS) - Today, the U.S. Geological Survey is releasing to the public documents showing elevated levels of cancer-causing, radioactive polonium—210 in 17 wells in Lahontan Valley, near the town of Fallon, Nevada. The study covers a rural area centered around the town of Fallon. Most of the 25 wells included in the study provide water for human and/or ...

  • Fracking: leaking wells cause gas-contaminated groundwater

    Contamination of drinking water in areas close to several fracking sites in the Marcellus and Barnett Shales, USA, is caused by structural problems leading to wells leaking natural gas into aquifers, a new study suggests. The researchers measured trace amounts of chemicals, called noble gases, which formed signatures of the sources of gas contamination in over 130 samples. These findings suggest ...

  • Scientists collect water near site of blown well

    Scientists from several universities are working to learn whether a gas well that blew wild last week off the Louisiana coast is polluting the Gulf of Mexico. Joseph Montoya, a biology professor with Georgia Tech, was performing tests aboard a vessel near the site of the 2010 BP oil spill when the Hercules 265 well blew Tuesday and caught fire. All 44 people on the rig were evacuated and not ...
