What's shakin'? 

Ultra Resources uses chemicals in hydraulic fracturing (fracking) to break open underground gas deposits. Then its crews get rid of the spent fluids by injecting them nearly three miles into the ground. It's common practice in the industry, but it might be causing a side-effect that's gotten fewer headlines than alleged groundwater contamination.
