Oil and gas wastewater disposal may harm West Virginia waterways

Unconventional oil and gas operations combine directional drilling and hydraulic fracturing, or ‘fracking,’ to release natural gas and oil from underground rock. Studies have centered on potential water pollution from this process that may increase endocrine disrupting chemicals in surface and ground water. Now, researchers report high levels of EDC activity in the surface water near a hydraulic fracturing wastewater disposal facility in West Virginia. —> Read More
