EPA to say fracking likely polluted Wyoming water: source

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will issue a draft report on Thursday saying hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, for natural gas has likely polluted water in a town in Wyoming, a government source said.

The EPA is issuing the draft report to seek peer review of the research, the source said.
