So what is it?
Hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”, is the process of drilling and injecting fluid into the ground at a high pressure in order to fracture shale rocks to release natural gas inside.
To the site
Each gas well requires hundreds of tanker trucks to carry water and supplies to and from the site.
The water brought in is mixed with sand and chemicals to create fracking fluid. Approximately 40,000 gallons of chemicals are used per fracturing.
Up to 600 chemicals are used in fracking fluid, including known carcinogens and toxins such as…
The mixture reaches the end of the well where the high pressure causes the nearby shale rock to crack, creating fissures where natural gas flows into the well.
During this process, methane gas and toxic chemicals leach out from the system and contaminate nearby groundwater.
Methane concentrations are 17x higher in drinking-water wells near fracturing sites than in normal wells.
Natural Springs UK will be working alogside communities where fracking is destined for. Our aim is to trace and re-open and/or
promote existng springs. A Natural spring is a great meeting place and helps build strong communities. This also adds extreme pressure to the companies in question, as now people are drinking direct from the ground they intend to fracture.
