Fracking Water

April 25th, 2013

Your profile of Kathy Neset was interesting, but your reporter neglected to ask one critical question about the well on her farm where she gets “her own private drinking water,” and which is “close to fracking sites”: where do those fracking sites dump their wastewater (of which there is usually a considerable amount)? (“Oil Boom,” Classes, January/February). I don’t imagine it’s anywhere near Kathy Neset’s well. I wonder where it does go.
