On Thursday, the Environmental Protection Agency issued the draft of a report that found hydraulic fracturing has not caused "widespread harm" to drinking water but warned of "potential contamination of water supplies if safeguards are not maintained." A brief article about the study appeared in the New York Times on Friday: "EPA: No Widespread Harm to Drinking Water from Fracking." This morning, NPR's Weekend Edition Sunday did a story about the EPA study: "Both Sides Claim Victory Over EPA Fracking Study." The story, which touches on the implications of the study for New York, where fracking has been banned, will be available for listening online at around noon today.
