    no seriously it makes alot of difference.fracking inside city limits disturbs the peace of the residents there,who were there well before fracking,it would be a different argument if they had moved there after knowing it was there.
    A frac job only lasts about 24 hours (+/-). It isn't a permanent operation. A road construction job makes more noise than a frac job.

    Read about the case here.

    The specific contaminates are from the chemicals that are not mentioned due to proprietary claims.

    Maybe you could tell us the chemicals that are added to the water and sand?

    Water and sand, it sounds so harmless. Right?
    What about the thousands of people who work on frac jobs, everyday, that don't get sick?

    So? They're both photographs of frac jobs, in progress.

    I was not fooled for a moment. My neighbors had a block party to fight a proposed sewage treatment center that they heard about in a rumor. They were incorrect. I was on a bike run that day and couldn't attend the party, but I saw their signs at the main entrance to our kingdom.

    Hell, I've told you too much now and you're just going to be confused. Let's keep this simple:

    The citizens of Denton, Texas voted to ban hydraulic fracturing within the city limits.

    You watch out for your city and we'll watch out for ours.
    I am in the oil business in the transportation side. Why would they disguise a fracking operation as a radio tower? What would they use the tower structure for? The hole would have to already drilled cased and cemented to frack.

    Side note most contamination comes from improperly cemented and cased wells.

    Debunked....

    Fracking is normally done about a mile underground. The water table is only a few hundred feet underground.

    Why don't you explain to everyone here how exactly fracking contaminates the water supply?

    Closer to two miles, actually. When I was working in Irion and Crockett counties, we were TD'ing between 11,000 and 13,000 feet.

    That's the deep holes out here had a one that was going 17,000 about a year back. That one was exploratory though. Ours usually run about 5,000 or so depending on where you are at. Some of our wells are at the 700ft mark. Most of the water tables we have are brackish already. Some of it at very high pressure. If the drought keeps up it may become profitable to clean the water up for farming and drilling purposes.

    Yawn.

    Nothing here but conjecture and opinion. No proof of anything. No conclusive studies. All I see is liberal agendas being pushed by liberal agencies and liberal media outlets. Nothing credible.

    Please take a step back and look at this objectively. Thousands of wells have been fracked throughout the United States. You've brought to my attention the case of one farmer in Texas, and one farmer in Wyoming (whose case was subsequently dropped, by the way).

    You know what, a solar panel could fall on your head and kill you too, you know.

    This is ridiculous.

    Part of me hopes you anti-frackers actually win. Then we can go back to using the only other energy source we have in abundance: COAL. And as the black smoke billows out of the smokestacks of corporations nationwide, I will laugh at the irony, just like I laugh every time I read about migrating birds that are being wiped out by windmills.
