Testing well water for safety long term
A town in the USA, named Winona, needs concern about its water quality since its near the top of one of the greatest river water systems.
As human activists have demonstrated against hydraulic fracturing and sand mining, they claim they all need clean fresh drinking water. In overall, after testing the water about seven hundred chemicals are used for fracking which include radioactive isotopes.
Although these isotopes are meant to be there temporary as they’re to track the underground fracking fluids, some radiation in water still remains for over five years.
As outlined in the letter to editor many of these chemicals in addition to the water and sand do form a slurry that gets injected at the wellhead. This can include some five million gallons of well water in its lifetime. So if one wonder whether is well water safe to drink as there are thousands of water wells across the nation, it would sum up to significant loss to the country’s drinking water resources.
The author concludes that there’s a need to seriously consider how to be changing our priority requirements. When thinking about enhancing quality water systems we must focus on energy conservation sustainability too.
