A study by researchers at Stanford University finds that fracking operations get closer to drinking water sources than typically thought, according to Grist . This means that oil and gas companies are likely searching for natural gas at shallower depths underground.
Scientists looked at fracking activities near two geological formations in Wyoming for the investigation. And though they didn’t find current drinking water sources to be contaminated by fracking chemicals, they did find that some chemicals get uncomfortably close to freshwater aquifers.
While fracking often occurs miles below the Earth’s surface, researchers noted that it sometimes happens just thousands of feet underground.Read More
Researchers from Denmark and the U.S. have issued reports that spell trouble for the world’s future water needs, according to a release from Aarhus University.
Drawing from three years of research, the reports state that competition between drinking water and energy demand will result in water scarcity for 30-40 percent of the world by 2020. If energy and water usage trends continue as projected, by 2040 the entire world will lack the water to simultaneously quench its thirst and meet energy demands.
Electricity is the primary source of water consumption in most countries, because all power plants excepting wind and solar systems require water cooling cycles.Read More
Officials in Newark, N.J. say the city’s water department failed to properly monitor turbidity in its drinking water for more than three years, according to NBC New York . Turbid waters can indicate the presence of many harmful organisms.
Because of the lapse, water managers say some bacteria, viruses or parasites could have gone undetected. Those drinking the water could have experienced symptoms like nausea, diarrhea or headaches and officials urge anyone continuing to feel similar symptoms to see a doctor.
Substandard recording and monitoring procedures in Newark’s turbidity meters have been corrected. And the city is conducting a comprehensive evaluation of its water treatment plant by order of the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.Read More
