Vivian Underhill et al Publish New Article on Environmental and Economic Impacts of the Halliburton Loophole

Postdoctoral Researcher Vivian Underhill of SSEHRI et al recently published an article in Environmental Pollution, titled, “Outcomes of the Halliburton Loophole: Chemicals regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act in US fracking disclosures, 2014–2021”. The authors, Vivian Underhill, Angelica Fiuza, Gary Allison, Grace Poudrier, Sarah Lerman-Sinkoff, Lourdes Vera, and Sara Wylie conducted aggregate analysis of chemicals that would otherwise be regulated by SDWA within FracFocus, an industry sponsored fracking disclosure database. The paper quantifies the total disclosures and total mass of these chemicals used between 2014 and 2021, examines trends in their use, and investigates which companies most use and supply them.
