Fracking, no demon: In response to Patricia St. August’s letter in your Friday, Nov. 30, issue concerning the procedure, referred to as “fracking,” I would like to offer the following. The states allowing this procedure have qualified, intensive oversite and have found nothing to substantiate that the horrendous problems she has alluded to are caused by fracking. Some of these problems, such as natural gas getting into domestic water wells and causing fire out of the faucet, have been around for many years, but have not been found to be the fault of fracking.
