Radium contamination in USA public water supply
#1
Radium contamination in public water systems nationwide. (Interactive MAP)

Extracts:

Radium concentrations in drinking water are drawn from EWG’s Tap Water database, and represent the average of all samples of treated drinking water collected from 2010 to 2015 for each water system. Samples reported as non-detections are entered as zero, which could underestimate the actual radium concentration in drinking water.

Federal drinking water regulations set a Maximum Contaminant Level, an enforceable legal standard, of 5 picocuries per liter (pCi/L) for the combined level of two isotopes of radium: radium-226 and radium-228. Some water utilities and states report individual levels of these isotopes, while others report a single combined radium value of a specific sample. When the combined level was not reported by the water utility, EWG added measurements of radium-226 and radium–228 to calculate it, as available.

Here's an EPA report from 2015: Assessment of the Potential Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing for Oil  and Gas on Drinking Water Resources - hopefully, someone will have the most recent report for you. This one doesn't have enough available data to make thorough conclusions. There are more studies found by searching: "Environmental and Human Health Impacts of Spreading Oil and Gas Wastewater on Roads .pdf"

This Enviroreporter "Fracked Nation" article outlines the serious environmental contamination and financial losses people have endured, caused by fracking in their local communities. In the comment section there is a extensive list of  fracking contamination horror story reports from around the USA, and other countries!
