There are so many myths and misconceptions out there about fracking. 

When it comes to fracking, there is no shortage of myths and misconceptions. In fact, it’s difficult to turn on the TV or read an article about fracking without being inundated with supposed “facts” about how bad it is for the environment and for the United States as a whole. At Well Water Solutions, we provide high-quality frac tanks and other solutions in the United States and Canada to make fracking more efficient and effective, and we are here to dispel the myths about fracking. The following is a list of some of the most common myths about fracking debunked:

Myth #1. Fracking makes it possible for people to light their tap water on fire. 

In the film, Gasland, a Colorado resident strikes a match and his tap water bursts into flames. The film claims that this is due to natural gas seeping into the well water. However, the water in question was tested by the Colorado Department of Natural Resources, and it was found that there were no indications of any gas or oil related impacts to the well water. It was then concluded that the natural gas that existed in the water was from natural sources.

Myth #2. Fracking pollutes our water. 

One of the biggest concerns about fracking is its complications with our water supply, but this concern has been found to be largely false. The EPA recently conducted a study that found that, apart from spills, fracking has not caused our water sources to be polluted.
