Those pushing this will try their hardest to link the preliminary results in Pavillion to the Marcellus but the Marcellus shale deposit is a completely different beast as the EPA states. It is several thousand feet under the aquifer. Two peer reviewed studies, on of which utilized baseline pre drilling water quality data, surveyed 100’s of wells in Pennsylvania and found no contamination from fracking fluids.


I would remind you that in Florida they inject sewage several thousand feet below the aquifer yet the ground water is becoming contaminated by E. Coli.

This is what is supposed to happen

This is what is happening for the future

This is what actually happens

Finally, let me say that the geologists are wrong. Injection waste and water WILL find its way back up. It is no good towing the mainstream geology viewpoint and bleating "There is no danger, there is no danger" when there is and this has been confirmed by the EPA. It does not matter if the well is 3,000ft or 10,000ft the risk is there. The very nature of shale is to fracture along clevage planes and water/frac fluid WILL find it's way out. It is NOT possible for a geologist to categorically state that this will not happen.


The Florida DEP has concluded that approximately three deep-well injection sites in Pinellas, Dade, and Palm Beach counties have caused confirmed fluid movement into USDWs (Figure 4-4). An additional six deep-well injection facilities in Pinellas and Brevard counties have caused probable fluid movement into USDWs. As many as nine additional facilities have caused fluid movement into non-USDWs, predominantly in Broward County (Figure 4-4).

Approximately 18 deep-well injection facilities appear to be associated with some form of unintended fluid movement from the injection zone. Deep-well injection facilities in many other parts of South Florida do not appear to have caused unintended fluid movement. Multiple facilities in each of several counties (Charlotte, Collier, Lee, Sarasota, and St. Lucie counties) have operated for years with no apparent fluid
movement.

Just one more report for the EPA to take more control over everything that goes on. The EPA is a communist entity that uses this bull# reports to take control over more and more of our lives, businesses and land. There will be one world government and it will be the EPA! Be afraid be very afraid!
