“In May 2012, Truthout reported that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) declared that water in wells at 61 homes in rural Dimock, Pennsylvania, was safe to drink despite the presence of pollutants in several of the wells. The agency had spent four months testing the wells after residents in the rural neighborhood complained that nearby fracking operations had spoiled their water supplies, but after releasing seemingly conflicting results, the EPA closed its investigation.” (Truthout, July 30, 2013)
