Hydrofracturing & The Environment

Hydrofracturing is not a new concept—in fact, it has been utilized by the gas and oil industries in the U.S. since the 1940s. Thanks to increased media attention, however, many are led to believe that this is a new technology developed specifically for the extraction of natural gas.

Gas Drilling & Water Quality

What to expect and how to protect drinking water

Gas well drilling has been growing in activity over the past 10 years across the U.S.—specifically gas drilling within shale—due to the technological advancements in hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, which has made it more economically feasible to produce. Hydraulic fracturing, often referred to as fracking, is a process that creates fractures within the rock formations to allow more fluids to flow to the well.

Drinking Water Product Certification

An overview of major certification agencies and the certification process

In light of recent issues with pharmaceuticals in drinking water and the increased need for filtering systems in the home, it may be time to consider all of your certification agency options. Certification is a qualifying process that ensures a purchased product meets current industry standards.

In this case, standards are publications that establish accepted practices, technical requirements and terminologies for products, services and systems.
