New Study Reveals North Dakota Contaminated With Radioactive Materials, Heavy Metals, & Corrosive Salts From Fracking
"A new study has revealed significant contamination of soil and water in North Dakota from radioactive materials, heavy metals and corrosive salts as a result of oil and gas wastewater spills.

The Duke University research, published in Environmental Science and Technology, highlights the possible health implications for humans and wildlife from the 3,900 reported brine spills in the region since the rise of fracking in 2007.

Researchers found high levels of ammonium, selenium, lead and other toxic contaminants – the levels of selenium – a radioactive element – were 35 times higher than the federal threshold set “for freshwater aquatic life”.

Particularly high levels of radium contamination were recorded in the ground downstream from where the spills started, which researchers say indicates radioactive materials from the spills were soaking into the ground.

“Overall, our data show that the Bakken brines are enriched in numerous toxic elements and their release to the environment could directly affect the quality of the impacted water,” the study warns."

fly-ash at Power Generating Plants is very Radioactive
because it's concentrated down from railroad cars full of coal.

This isn't caused by fracking.
Its caused by successful oil drilling, Of which Fracking is part of.

Fracking will end up being the death of alot of good people who live in the area where it is being done like the DFW Metroplex.

From what I understand T. Boone says the concrete casing is what protects the ground water from the harsh chemicals coming out of the ground. Well as you know Concrete does not flex, it cracks when stressed, look at your driveway or your foundation. And I bet the great majority if not all of those concrete casing eventually crack and there you go, a path to the ground water.

I've worked at a facility that accepts production water and industrial solids for the last 8 years. I know exactly what's in the water because what comes in is tested regularly so we can push it right back out the door for road spray and irrigation.

Take my word for it, it doesn't get fully clean. The VOC's, which are the most dangerous contaminants, are also the most difficult to remove, not to mention the metals are still elevated.

You deniers are fools. I've seen small towns around here get swallowed by drilling sites and many of the residents get cold and flu symptoms that never go away.

Everywhere the fracking boom has occurred, local newspapers have reported on the spills, mischievous dumpings and resident sickness; it never gets reported any further. Complete blackout in national news.

Go to North Dakota where the oil patch is.

ND is second on about 10 crops in the US.
They grow a lot of food.
Enjoy your pasta.
