The El Paso Times reports:
"Scores of photographs taken by state emergency-management officials show that when floodwaters rise in Texas, they inundate oil wells and fracking sites, sweeping crude and noxious chemicals into rivers throughout the Lone Star State...It's hard to draw definite conclusions simply by looking at photographs, but after reviewing a few, one expert said the spills could be deadly."That's a potential disaster," said Walter Tsou, a physician and past president of the American Public Health Association. He published an article about the possible risks posed by fracking fluids on the website of the Environmental Health Policy Institute, an arm of the group Physicians for Social Responsibility.READ MORE:http://libertyfight.com/2016/fracking-fluid-cows-died.html
"I'm sure it will get into the groundwater and streams and creeks," Tsou said of photos depicting oil plumes and inundated wastewater ponds. "In other areas, cattle that drank the fracking fluid actually died an hour after drinking it. There are potential carcinogens that can lead to leukemia, brain cancer and other endocrine disruptors that can affect premature births. So it is not good to drink fracked wastewater."
