The title is misleading — it should probably have been called “A Progress Report Of The Study…” because it’s basically an update of a megastudy on fracking’s impact that will not come out for years and doesn’t draw any conclusions.
But it does contain a cool graphic showing all the counties where fracking is occurring:

The takeaway: half of all states are seeing fracking activity — even Washington.
So the results of the megastudy are going to affect more than just the states we consider oil giants.
