EPA: Fracking poses no ‘widespread, systemic’ harm to drinking water

A long-awaited EPA report on hydraulic fracturing hands a victory to the oil and gas industry, concluding that the extraction process has “not led to widespread, systemic impacts on drinking water resources.”The conclusions of EPA’s years-long fracking study should bolster natural gas producers, who have benefited from Obama administration environmental policies that shrunk the coal industry’s hold on the electricity industry.

The report itself
Obviously it being the EPA they still keep a way out by claiming it might do so one time in the future but at least for now that they say it it even the most hysterical anti-something can’t claim it anymore. Worse activists than the EPA don’t exist.
