The Environmental Protection Agency reported in a July 22 draft study that fracking wastewater wells in Arkansas, Ohio, and West Virginia experienced small to moderate earthquakes and that these earthquakes increased in magnitude and frequency over time. The report recommended companies operating these sites should stop the procedure or change their tactics. The authors of the draft study, which was released via a Freedom of Information Act request, are still collecting input from stakeholders. The Science Advisory Board will review the report once it is released.
