There are a lot of reasons to smile when a boom hits.But there are some very real environmental costs related to fracking. Some are manageable and some can be detrimental to the public good in a worst case scenario.Sweetwater, TXBrian McCormackFracking Nolan County: The pros and the consSweetwater Reporterurn:publicid:dailypress.com:12736Change0Usable2014-09-22T09:48:36-04:00
