Gas drilling has many states contemplating their water rules. The environmental consequences may be disastrous without changes.
Pick up a newspaper these days and you’ll notice that there are more and more stories that deal with polluted or contaminated water not to mention the kind of water that you can set afire with a match. The world is becoming a very scary place when it comes to being able to count on having safe water.
Have you ever taken a good look at what is in the water that comes out of the taps in your house? Try it sometime and you may never drink it again. In fact, your best bet would be to check into water distillers to keep your family’s drinking water safe.
To list the things that are in the water today would take a whole article and then some, so suffice it to say that if you take the time to do some online research, you will find out much more than you ever wanted to know about how safe your water isn’t.
The tip of the iceberg is that your water may contain drugs, pesticides, herbicides, mercury, chlorine, E. coli, salmonella and various hormones. When you get your research done, you’ll be totally amazed at what passes for safe drinking water these days. If you want a safe alternative, then consider using water distillers.
Just a quick look at gas drilling, also referred to as fracking, because the process involves some toxic chemicals that ultimately tend to wind up in the local aquifers. This isn’t good for anyone, but unfortunately, there are a number of states that are so far behind updating their environmental laws, the gas drilling continues largely unimpeded. What that does to the water tables is another story and one that hundreds, if not thousands, of people angrily dispute when they see the change in water color, smell and taste.
Basically what’s going on right now across the nation is many states are trying to play catch up to the gas drilling industry and rein them in. Much of the water they high pressure pump underground to make the gas rise to the surface winds up staying underground, contaminated with who knows what (the industry won’t reveal it’s fracking formula) and the rest of it comes to the surface.
While some states may have the surface water covered, in that the company “must” treat it to drinking water standards, there is still a long way to go before people will be happy drinking water that had toxic chemicals in it. It just sticks in the back of people’s minds that “something” was in the water and that unseen something may harm them. Those who do have concerns like this might want to invest in water distillers and take a load off their minds. It’s the safest, freshest alternative to turning on the tap and wondering what you will get out of it this month.
