EPA Says 475 Fracking Spills & Scientists say 6,600 spills in US over 10 years [VIDEO]


Published on Feb 22, 2017

There were more than 6,600 spills at fracked oil and gas wells in the US over a 10-year period, according to a new paper on hydraulic fracking authored by university scientists from around the country. This figure far exceeds the numbers given in an earlier Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) report. Prof. Zacariah L Hildenbrand, co-founder of Collaborative Laboratories for Environmental Analysis and Remediation (CLEAR), joins RT America’s Anya Parampil to discuss the significance of these disparate figures and how to mitigate the problem of spills at fracked sites going forward.
