Is Hydraulic Fracking Ruining Water Supplies?

There is a new form of obtaining natural gas. This is known as hydraulic fracking. Environmentalists are on both sides of this issue. The plus side of fracking water and other pressurized components use, is the reaching of valuable energy stores in the ground. This use of energy will decrease our dependance on outside oil and energy sources. In turn, this will decrease overall energy costs. Many in this business maintain that these methods are safe. There are increased reports that this form of chemical and water fracking is harmful to our water supplies. Pressurized fracking water is debatable. Many environmentalists want more safeguards in place to regulate this process.
