Cocktail of Chemicals

A drilling field sits next to the site of two deep injection wells, owned by Anterra, a wastewater injection company, which has funneled almost 20 million gallons of wastewater deep underground since the beginning of 2014. This water contains a dangerous cocktail of ingredients: radioactive materials, human carcinogens (such as benzene), and countless other chemicals that companies won’t reveal because they are protected as ‘trade secrets.’
