Syracuse University study: fracing does not affect methane levels in drinking water
In a new study that examined 11,309 drinking water wells, researchers at Syracuse University in New York discovered that background levels of methane in the water are unrelated to their proximity to wells using hydraulic fracturing. The finding suggests that fracing operations are not significantly contributing to the leakage of methane from deep rock formations up to the shallower aquifers where well water is drawn.

The new study contradicts previous studie...
