Letter: Fracking - where does the water come from?

FURTHER to the letter re-‘fracking pollution’, I have read various articles on this subject and almost every one mentions using vast quantities of water.

Bearing in mind that we are on the verge of a hosepipe ban this summer due to lack of rainfall, I wonder where this water is going to come from?

Or have the ‘powers that be’ who license and control (and I use the term control’ loosely) got their heads well and truly stuck up their proverbials that they have not thought of that?

I for one do not want my precious drinking water sloshing around the earth’s core just to provide some little known company with massive profits!
