3 Facts About Hydrofracking, Oconto Falls, Wisconsin

The hydrofracking process is designed to improve well water flow. Over time, dirt and sediment can block the natural bedrock fissures that feed your well. Hydrofracking offers an effective, safe way to open weatherized zones and improve overall water yield. Here are three facts you should know about this process.

What You Need to Know About Hydrofracking

1. It’s Not Hydraulic Fracturing

The term “fracking” is commonly associated with oil and gas drilling. However, hydrofracking, also known as hydrofracturing, is extremely different than the methods used by oil and gas drilling companies. Instead, the process involves injecting pressurized water into bedrock through an existing well. The targeted stream of highly pressurized water flushes away debris that would otherwise impede water flow.

2. It Doesn’t Crack Bedrock

hydrofrackingAlthough the water is pressurized to up to 4,000 pounds per square inch, the pressure is not high enough to crack the bedrock formation. However, it is strong enough to clean away clogged dirt and sediment, without damaging the surrounding area. This process results in more productive water-bearing fractures that can increase your overall water yield.

3. It’s Chemical-Free

Unlike hydraulic fracking, hydrofracking is chemical-free, which minimizes the risk of contaminating groundwater. This process is effective for both new and old wells and will help keep you and your family safe from sickness.
