Small earthquakes are a recognized risk of hydraulic fracturing, or 'fracking', a procedure in which companies unlock energy reserves by pumping millions of litres of water underground to fracture shale rock and release the natural gas trapped inside.
Fracking Wastewater Disposal Plan Could Send Contaminants Over Niagara Falls
