EPA's Study of Hydraulic Fracturing and Its Potential Impact on Drinking Water Resources

Appendix A: Chemicals Identified in Hydraulic Fracturing Fluids and Wastewater (Excel file)

This excel file of Appendix A from the progress report contains tables of chemicals reported to be used in hydraulic fracturing fluids and chemicals detected in flowback and produced water.
