What Is In Fracking Fluid?

Posted by Courtney Washburn at May 02, 2011 07:40 AM |

As Idaho prepares for natural gas fracking, we should know what is in the fluid.

With natural gas fracking proposed for Idaho, we want to know just what is in that fluid. The High County News has done a great job of pulling together a chart, "What in the well?" that show the types of chemicals associated with the practice of fracking. 

If you need a refresher on fracking and what is happening with it in Idaho, you can read up on it here.

The recent discovery of natural gas in western Idaho has us, and hopefully many of you, wondering if their drinking water wells will be protected from contamination. I do know the track record is not good when developers are entrusted with protecting the public.

I am shocked at a couple of things, The use of the chemicals used in fracking, second would love the name of the official from Idaho Department of Land, who said 'no need to prohibit the use of cancer-causing chemical,since it is to hard to figure out which chemical is causing cancer, and the reference to twinkies shows ignorance, perhaps untill We do know which one cause cancer, non should be used at all.
