Just how deep are these wells that they’re frackin’? How close to the surface are they placing the charges? I run a water company servicing 500 homes. When they started drillin’ gas wells near by, I expressed my concern. They told me that the gas wells would be thousands of feet deeper than my 275’ deep wells, and there was no concern at all about contamination.. nonetheless, as I was leaving their engineer’s office I mentioned that if they screwed up, I was gonna be the new owner of their company. So far, 10 years, no problems, but also no frackin’ that I’m aware of. Edge of the Cuyahoga River Valley.

They'd just settle with you so they can go on saying that groundwater contamination from fracking fluids "has never been proven."
The Marcellus Shale formation is about 1 mile down. Just google Marcellus Shale and you will read lots of information. Just beware that 75% of the information on the Internet about Marcellus Shale extraction is anti-drilling.
