EPA report links gas drilling to contaminated water

Dec 12, 2011 12:04 am
Film director Josh Fox heralds the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)'s recent report tying hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, to contaminated water in the small town of Pavillion, Wyoming in Friday's Guardian. Fox included the testimony of several Pavillion residents in his 2010 Oscar-nominated documentary "Gasland." In The Daily News, Glenn Blain writes about how New York's anti-fracking activists are drawing strength from the EPA report. But DEC spokesman Emily DeSantis told Blain the EPA report was "specific to Pavillion." “New York would require rigorous casing and cementing standards and a minimum of 1,000 feet of separation between the high-volume hydraulic fracturing activity and the deepest ground water,” DeSantis added.
