quote: A) Chemicals used in fracking have been traced in surface water hundreds of miles away from the nearest fracking sites in the United States.
quote: B) Well established evidence (thousands of recorded instances) of "flammable water" in the United States has been found near fracking sites.
quote: That's pretty good evidence that the chemicals weren't from the fracking site then. Water in underground aquifers generally travels about an inch to a yard a day. The fastest flowrates (nearby rivers) are about a dozen yards a day. At these speeds it would take about 30 years best case for chemicals to leech 100 miles. On average it would take 500 to 20,000 years.
