- Pennsylvania has confirmed at least 106 water-well
contamination cases since 2005, out of more than 5,000 new wells. There were
five confirmed cases of water-well contamination in the first nine months of
2012, 18 in all of 2011 and 29 in 2010. The Environmental Department said more
complete data may be available in several months.
- Ohio had 37 complaints in 2010 and no confirmed
contamination of water supplies; 54 complaints in 2011 and two confirmed cases
of contamination; 59 complaints in 2012 and two confirmed contaminations; and
40 complaints for the first 11 months of 2013, with two confirmed
contaminations and 14 still under investigation, Department of Natural Resources
spokesman Mark Bruce said in an email. None of the six confirmed cases of
contamination was related to fracking, Bruce said.
- West Virginia has had about 122 complaints that drilling
contaminated water wells over the past four years, and in four cases the
evidence was strong enough that the driller agreed to take corrective action,
- A Texas spreadsheet contains more than 2,000 complaints, and
62 of those allege possible well-water contamination from oil and gas activity,
said Ramona Nye, a spokeswoman for the Railroad Commission of Texas, which
oversees drilling. Texas regulators haven't confirmed a single case of
drilling-related water-well contamination in the past 10 years, she said.

Find any oil companies? Then you have your answer.
The key is to change our political system in America. Don’t allow these environmentalist oil
companies to fund politicians. Take the money out of the Belt Way.
I know…. Good luck!
