Horizontal Hydraulic Fracturing of the Utica Shale Layer below eastern Ohio in an effort to extract Natural Gas is a relatively new process that requires explosives and drilling 1.5 miles below the surface of the earth. This video reflects industry and environmental perspectives on the issue of regulating Fracking well sites. Currently, these sites are exempt from the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act. The US EPA is currently doing a study on the effects of fracking on drinking water supplies. Preliminary results of this study will be made public in December 2012. Several states have issued morartoriums on fracking until this study is done.
