“The U.S. EPA is working to increase transparency regarding the potential impacts of hydraulic fracturing. This article explores the recent implementation of disclosure rules in Texas and Colorado and examines whether increased transparency regarding hydraulic fracturing fluids better informs interested citizens about the potential effects of industry activities on their drinking water.”
