Study shows water sources of most populated U.S. cities, how the sources are used and their level of protection
The Nature Conservancy released the findings of a study that identifies drinking water sources for 493 cities across the globe.

Wastewater from fracking could pollute surface water and drinking water sources
Risk analysts have concluded that the disposal of contaminated wastewater from hydraulic fracturing (fracking) wells producing natural gas in the intensively developed Marcellus Shale region poses a substantial potential risk of river and other water pollution. That conclusion, analysts say, calls for regulators and others to consider additional mandatory steps to reduce the potential of drinking water contamination from salts and naturally occurring radioactive materials, such as uranium, radium and radon from the rapidly expanding fracking industry.
