Like the claim that radiation exposure levels were loosened after the Fukushima disaster, this claim is a complete distortion of the facts.

1) PAGS are not regulations.

2) PAGS concern exposure of workers engaged in work at radiological incidents and nearby residents.

3) PAGS have no effect on drinking water standards.

Fracking, or more accurately, Hydraulic fracturing uses water (90%), sand (9.5%) and additives (.05% typically salt, citric acid, and/or benzene). Most of the water is recovered from oil wells (oil rarely comes in without water being present) and reused. It uses pressure to fracture the rock surrounding the well, letting the trapped oil escape to where it can be recovered.

It is not the same as "equivalent of draining the oil out of your motor and wondering why it's knocking- while drinking the antifreeze like it's fine"..that statement is utter nonsense and devoid of meaning.

Before you jump on bandwagons, you should know something about them.
