    All I see at the link is a bunch of personal attacks, no real evidence of anything whatsover (modeling of radioactive levels in wastewater?).

    Also a lawyer's blog is a bad source for anything science-ey.

    The Study Design Draft continues a pattern of sweeping issues that are not unique to hydraulic
    fracturing
    into the study. Second, we believe that the role of state regulators and the inherent protections
    from state regulations are not being adequately included in the study. Third, the Study Design
    Draft focus on retrospective analysis relative to prospective analysis raises issues regarding the
    appropriateness of the retrospective analysis, its structure and the reporting of that analysis while
    the prospective assessments are incomplete. Fourth, many of the referenced materials in the
    Study Design Draft are not science based. In fact, the sources are advocates opposing fracturing
    and the referenced materials are assertions that are not corroborated or accurate. If the Study
    Design Draft is being influenced by these allegations, it will skew the orientation of the study
    and diminish its value.


    The current Study Design Draft significantly exceeds a scope related to
    hydraulic fracturing and drinking water. Similarly, it raises substantial questions regarding how
    it will accurately assess the risks of fracturing in the context of the regulatory system that
    controls fracturing – including how it will utilize the expertise of the state regulators that manage
    those risks.


    These are exerpts from:
