Fracking is a type of gas drilling that injects millions of gallons of hydraulic fluids such as chemical mixtures,water and sand into a well to create pressure that cracks open rocks underground thus releasing natural gas.Frack fluids contain up to nearly 600 combination of chemicals.
There is of course a “Catch 22″ with this technique this process can deplete and contaminate local water,environmental damages and threaten public health.Residents who reside in areas where fracking is used experienced reduction in property values,loud noise, and explosions.
