Trailer Talk's Frack Talk: What Happens When Gas Drillers Ruin Your Home and Water? You Fight Back.

JS: Now, that's the people on Carter Road. Now, you extend out further where you have landowners, and they don't appreciate what we're talking about.
SA: And why is that? Is it because they haven't been adversely impacted as you have on Carter Road?
CS: In a different way. They've been impacted not with the water issue, but with less royalty money, because they had to plug up three of the wells.
JS: Yeah. It's taken away their livelihood, whether it be jobs -- and we're not after anybody's jobs or anybody's royalties. We just want clean air, clean water. We want to live a normal life. That's what we would like. We would like some normalcy back in our lives.
