NEWS ~ Fracking + Water Pollution

Hydraulic fracturing (also hydrofracturinghydrofrackingfracking or fraccing) is a well-stimulation technique in which rock is fractured by a pressurized liquid. The process involves the high-pressure injection of 'fracking fluid' (primarily water, containing sand and other proppants suspended with the aid of thickening agents) into a wellbore to create cracks in the deep-rock formations through which natural gaspetroleum, and brine will flow more freely. When the hydraulic pressure is removed from the well, small grains of hydraulic fracturing proppants (either sand or aluminium oxide) hold the fractures open.
