After going through wastewater treatment fracking wastewater still had three times too much barium and ten times too much strontium, two toxic metals.
At the Greene County plant, the levels of barium and strontium, two toxic metals found in fracking wastewater, were on average 5.99 and 48.3 mg/L, respectively. EPA drinking water standards for these metals are 2 and 4 mg/L, respectively.
I notice the waste water is going into the stream there. I think that our water is contaminated more than we realize.
