Hydrofracking involves injecting an injection of water
Hydrofracking is a method used to fracture large heavy rocks using pressurized hot water. Hydrofracking involves injecting an injection of water, sand or hydrocarbon into the well deep underground to explore and/or mine for natural gas, oil or other natural and man-made minerals. Hydrofracking is done in two basic methods; wet and dry hydrofracking. Wet hydrofracking is used to fracture the rock at the surface while dry hydrofracking involves injection of the fractures deeper into the earth.
Many US cities such as fracking places are prone to earthquakes. If you are living near an active seismic fault line, it is very possible that you could experience a triggering earthquake, even if you live in an earthquake zone. This is because most of the big earthquakes in the US are along fault lines which connect several major cities and hundreds of smaller towns and villages. So even if a town is located far away from the epicenter of the swarm, there is still a good chance of experiencing a triggered earthquake.
Hydrofracking contaminate the water table and the environment
Another reason that the US may be susceptible to disasters brought about by hydrofracking is because of the contaminants, toxins and contaminates that will be released into the ground water. These contaminants will be injected into the ground water and will contaminate the water table and the environment. The contaminants that are being feared the most are: organic solids, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), methane, natural gas, and petroleum-based chemicals or pesticides. These chemicals have been linked to a variety of diseases including: cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Lou Gehrig’s disease, Type II diabetes, and many more.
The major threat to human health and the environment posed by hydrofracking is the contamination of the ground water. This is especially true in states such as Texas, Oklahoma and Louisiana. In these areas, thousands of people have been forced to relocate, and the threat of drinking contaminated tap water is more than just an environmental concern. These swarms of chemicals can contaminate the ground water supply and make it undrinkable. This will result in an increase in water prices. In addition to costing money, the increased prices due to contaminated water supply will also force local businesses to raise their rates to make up for the lost profit from not selling drinkable water.
Hydrofracking is one way that drillers use to create high pressure injection wells
The high pressure caused by the hydrofracking may cause nearby homes and other underground sources of water to collapse, resulting in flooding. This will also happen if faulty injection wells are used. The result of this natural disaster is not only devastating to the people living nearby, but it can be extremely dangerous for those who are not trained to deal with the situation. Many people die each year from these floods and earthquakes because they did not act quickly enough when they received the news that there might be a problem. They were unable to leave their homes in time, and lost everything.
The economic impact of hydrofracking on rural areas has not been properly studied, but many experts believe that the practice could cost landowners more money than it saves. The practice does require sophisticated equipment and many strict regulations, but the benefits of hydrofracking far outweigh the costs of these rules. One hydrofracked well can pump up to twelve million gallons of gas into a confined space, giving you enough gas to power a town of twenty or thirty thousand people.
