  • EPA Releases Draft Assessment on the Potential Impacts to Drinking Water Resources – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a draft assessment on the potential impacts of hydraulic fracturing activities on drinking water resources in the United States. The assessment shows that while hydraulic fracturing activities in the U.S. are carried out in a way that have not led to widespread, systemic impacts on drinking water resources, there are potential vulnerabilities in the water lifecycle that could impact drinking water. The study will be finalized after review by the Science Advisory Board and public review and comment. Public comments can be submitted and viewed by using the Regulations.gov website for Docket ID No. EPA-HQ-OA-2015-0245.
