    Nitrilotriacetic acid Carcinogen

    Diesel Carcinogen, SDWA Benzene Carcinogen, SDWA

    Naphthalene Carcinogen Di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate Carcinogen, SDWA

    Xylene SDWA Acrylamide Carcinogen, SDWA

    Toluene SDWA Acetaldehyde Carcinogen

    Ethylbenzene SDWA Copper SDWA

    Formaldehyde Carcinogen Ethylene oxide Carcinogen

    Thiourea Carcinogen Propylene oxide Carcinogen

    Benzyl chloride Carcinogen

    How these chemicals get into the environment:

    • Transport of contaminates into underground drinking water zones through fractures

    produced during hydraulic fracturing process.

    • Transportation of contaminates into drinking water through abandoned or other

    pre-existing wells.

    • Leakage of contaminates from production wells (e.g., improperly constructed or

    damaged wells).

    • Leaching of contaminates from improperly lined storage or drilling pits

    • Spills of the HF fluids into surface water bodies used for drinking.

    • Transport of contaminates through natural fractures in the rock into adjacent

    drinking water aquifers.

    References: Chemicals Used in Hydraulic Fracturing, US House of Representatives, April 2011. www.epa.gov/hfstudy

    Between 2005 and 2009, the 14 leading oil and gas hydraulic fracturing (HF) companies in the United States injected over 780 million gallons of hydraulic fracturing products (not including water). Of

    these 2,500 different hydraulic fracturing products, more than 650 of these products contained chemicals that are known or possible human carcinogens, regulated under the Safe Drinking Water

    Act (SDWA), or listed as hazardous air pollutants.
