Fracking will poison New York’s drinking water, critics warn

A former staffer at a state government agency responsible for regulating hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, has warned that allowing the controversial gas drilling method in New York would lead to contamination of the state’s aquifers and would poison its drinking water….Wes Gillingham, the program director of Catskill Mountainkeeper, one of a large number of environmental groups active in opposing fracking in New York state, echoed Bayer.”It is not just a matter of numbers of personnel. We need people overseeing the industry and inspecting the cement around the casings,” he told the Guardian.
