EPA Posts Scientific Papers for their Study of Hydraulic Fracturing and Its Potential Impact on Drinking Water Resources

EPA scientists are conducting research and publishing papers that will contribute to the draft report of potential impacts of hydraulic fracturing on drinking water resources, expected to be released in December 2014. The peer reviewed papers are available here. Future papers will be posted as they become available.

In addition, on December 9th, EPA reconvened the study’s Technical Roundtable. Subject-matter experts discussed the outcomes of the 2013 Technical Workshops, stakeholder engagement, and plans for the draft report. The roundtable meeting materials are available here.  In January, they’ll announce the date of the public webinar where participants can learn what was discussed.
