EPA: No Fracking Water Contamination

At a Congressional hearing on hydraulic fracturing, EPA administrator Lisa Jackson, reluctantly admits there have been no cases where fracking has been proven to contaminate aquifers and water supllies:

Sen Imhoff's response:
“I have great respect for Lisa Jackson and I always appreciate her honesty,” he said in a statement. “Although we disagree on most issues, when you ask her a question she gives you an honest answer. Over the past two years, I have asked various Obama Administration officials if they know of a single confirmed case of groundwater contamination from these fracked formations and every time the answer is no. Lisa Jackson’s statement today that she does not know of any proven case of water contamination further demonstrates that States are regulating hydraulic fracturing effectively and efficiently, and there is no need for the federal government to step in.”
