Two years ago, University of Cincinnati environmental studies professor Dr. Amy Townsend-Small caused a stir when she told a meeting of the Carroll County (Ohio) Concerned Citizens that her research showed fracking was NOT polluting their water.

The announcement was a stunner for opponents of hydraulic fracturing to reach natural gas deposits buried deep below the surface.  A portion of the funding for the study even came from fracking opponents who anticipated they would finally have scientific evidence that fracking contaminated their water wells.

“I am really sad to say this, but some of our funders, the groups that had given us funding in the past, were a little disappointed in our results,” Townsend-Small told those at the meeting.  “They feel that fracking is scary and so they were hoping that this data could be a reason to ban it.”
