If you are concerned that your ground water may have been or could be affected by drilling for gas nearby, it is recommended that you be diligent about having the water tested. You should test your water before any drilling occurs to establish a baseline.

Water Test America is pleased to announce a new line of sophisticated tests which are designed to determine the presence of fracking contamination. Many areas throughout North America are affected by shale drilling. The size of these areas continues to expand. Using convenient and accurate testing to identify possible contamination is important for health and well-being.
A spokesperson for Water Test America explained the need for testing to an interviewer recently, "If you are concerned that your ground water may have been or could be affected by drilling for gas nearby, it is recommended that you be diligent about having the water tested. You should test your water before any drilling occurs to establish a baseline. They suggest that a baseline of 2 or 3 water samples should be collected at different times of the year to permit the establishment of a normal variability baseline in the quality of your ground water purity over time caused by rainfall or additional factors."
The testing company recommends three fracking contamination water tests when identifying the presence of contaminants due to fracking. Test #755 identifies 29 potential fracking and 105 total contaminants, Test #779 provides testing results for 55 fracking and 240 total contaminants, and Test #777 includes 44 key fracking and 225 total contaminant options. The results range from heavy metals to E. Coli bacteria.
The testing process is simple and convenient. The customer is sent a test kit which contains everything necessary including instructions, water vials, and a postage-paid pre-addressed mail return envelope. The samples are collected and returned to the laboratory where a comprehensive analysis is performed and the results explained to the customer. The testing firm doesn't market remediation products, so clients can be assured of accurate and complete testing results.
