Three different communities showed evidence of groundwater contamination linked to nearby fracking activity. The EPA started investigating, but abruptly shut these investigations down.

Tar Sands Oil Extraction – The Dirty Truth
Medical gag order’ on health risks from fracking
November 01, 2013
Earlier this month (October), a research team out of Duke University examined Pennsylvania wastewater and found what they described as “alarmingly” high levels of radioactivity, salts, metals, and other potentially harmful sediments.
Yet the “medical gag rule” forbids doctors like Rodriguez from going into depth about the health problems that chemicals from fracking can cause. Critics have said the bill’s passage, and the court’s refusal to grant Dr. Rodriguez the right to speak freely with his patients, is an indication of just how entrenched the oil and gas lobby is in state politics. ref: rt.com/usa/medical-gag-rule-risks-fracking-053/

H.R. 2279: Reducing Excessive Deadline Obligations Act of 2013
The US House of Representatives was busy gutting federal hazardous-waste cleanup law
This bill was in response to the West Virginia toxic spill of January 9, 2014 which contaminated drinking water for over 300,000 residents. The House voted in a bill which would limit the powers of the EPA. Vote to oppose H.R. 2279 so that corporations are held accountable for the environment.
The three bills that comprise H.R. 2279 weaken the nation’s hazardous waste laws and place American communities at increased risk of toxic exposure and financial liability in the following ways.
