Pipelines & Hydraulic Fracturing

High pressure gas pipelines are actively being installed throughout the United States. While there are environmental risks associated with them relative to groundwater, stream, and spring water quality, the most significant risk is to humans and buildings within the large blast impact radius of catastrophic pipeline failures. Volatile stray gases are associated with hydraulic fracturing.
