background image Digital Mapping Quiz 2 - Study Guide (Part 1) Hydraulic fracturing  Fracking aka Hydraulic Fracturing = rigorous process of  mixing about 600 lethal chemicals and up to 7 
million gallons of water
 
to crack rock underground to  release/ access natural gas for consumption.  o Natural Gas is a lucrative source that enable us to  use our own gas (United States) instead of other 
foreign sources 
o Fracking has been linked to water, land and air  pollution  o 1972 – Richard Nixon signed the  Clean Water Act  to “prevent, monitor & penalize” industrial activity 
that would be harmful to US water supply
o 2005 – Dick Cheney and Congress passed an  Energy Bill  preventing the natural gas corporations from the Safe Drinking Water Act, Clean water, 
Super Fund and Clean Air Act. 
o Halliburton Loophole – lack of accountability of  these exemptions mentioned above   o Fracking started in the west and then moved to the  south, this process is active in 34 states  o Fracking is detrimental to the environment and  society  Fracking Damages  o Water – up to 7 million gallons to enter the well then another 7 million to crack the rock THEN up to 7 
million to RE-OPEN IT 
40 TRILLION GALLONS OF WATER HAS BEEN 
USED ON ACCOUNT OF HYDRAULIC 
background image FRACTURING … one of the major reasons why 
the water supply is declining 
Fracking has heavily contaminated water 
supply 
o In the movie, Gasland, Fox traveled to many  locations where he witnessed the effects of fracking
sites on local’s health – reports of headaches, 
fatigue, loss of taste, overall body pain, nausea 
Discoloration  of water supply, foul  gas-like  odor , and in some cases the water was  flammable   Oil and gas companies continuously deny any 
fault, however, for some 
residents whose  water was deemed undrinkable – they 
were supplied with alternate water 
source 
( contradiction which proves them  guilty Fraccidents associated with the effects of the 
intermingling chemicals found in the fracking 
mixture, and the local water supply 
Select state EPAs investigated/tested the water
supply to further prove the dangerous impact 
of fracking on residents near the wells. 
Chemicals found in the water, previously deemed 
drinkable
“Evidence of Fracking now being proved as having a 
negative effect on the water supply, new policies are now 
being debated on the local, state and national levels. “
The Frack Act has been put in place in an attempt to 
eliminate the practice of hydraulic fracturing.
