Incidents of water contamination with suspected links to hydraulic fracturing

Amy Mall senior policy analyst for the National Resources Defense Council, is creating a list of drinking water contamination related to hydraulic fracturing. It is going to be a useful resource for those of us who often deal with people who like to use the quote "there has never been one documented instance of drinking water contamination attributed to the New Mexico oil and gas industry." Okay, so it's not an exact quote, but people familiar with our former oil and gas association president, Bob Gallagher, can probably still hear it ringing in their ears.
Anyone who is aware of "other incidents of contamination" is encouraged to contact Amy Mall so that it can be posted on her blog.
