Methane, HydroCarbon Exploration will bring in the following effects
Ground water depletion
Salt water intrusion
Surface water discharge
Large scale environmental effects
Trees/Plants will be vanished within 1 month of digging each hole surrounding areas.
Agriculture will die
In several reported cases, local water wells have gone dry after coal bed methane operations have begun.
The saline and sodic quality of coal bed water can have catastrophic impacts on local agriculture when discharged into local waterways.
The moderate to high levels of salt in coal bed water can destroy soils and decrease crop production.
The salts gather in the root base of plants, making it harder for the plants to extract water from the soil and inhibiting growth.
Hydraulic fracturing raises serious concerns because of the chemicals being used and their impact on the local ecology.
If the coal bed aquifer is tributary to surface water or other groundwater aquifers, chemical contamination can spread into domestic, agricultural, and industrial water supplies.
Some of the chemicals used for this process is Lead, Uranium & Mercury which are all carcinogens.
In Shorter these projects are good for the private companies to extract and make money, but will kill many plants, trees and contaminate the entire soil.
