Hydraulic Fracturing - Induced Fractures and the Freshwater Aquifer

I came across these Industry Articles and a resource guide from the League of Women Voters- they do not appear to be peer reviewed, but I think it is good starting point in the discussion.

It is my understanding from a different report that fracing process may initially create fractures that radiate about 1000 to 1500 feet from a well, but the production zone is limited to a distance of about 300 to 500 feet because the fractures beyond this distance do not stay open.
