To the Editor:
Everyone seems to believe they will have their water damaged by fracking the lower level of the geology area. These wells are over 5,000 feet deep and the water supply we drink from is no deeper than 350 feet. The wells being drilled for the wet and natural gas are cased in steel and cement and, unless someone makes a boo boo, we will never see the material from those deep wells.

If you want to see contaminated water, go investigate the coal mines. Did you ever drink sulfur water or see the results? I came here from an area which has a mine in it. In fact, they used to use the sulfur to make Red Dog that surfaced on the alleys and roads because it was available.

If you want to talk to someone who knows these things, contact me.
