not be in your dictionary, and it might seem too awesome to be true, but believe it or not, "hydrofracking" is actually a real welling word.
According to Cushing and Sons (a different drilling company also based in New Hampshire):
Getting water from bedrock is accomplished by creating fractures in the bedrock. Our standard equipment delivers up to 350 lbs/in fracturing power. This will normally yield sufficient water yields. However, when it's necessary to increase water yields, a technique called "hydrofracking" is employed which delivers up to 5,000 lbs/in pressure. This opens and cleans sediments from existing fissures and creates larger fractures in the bedrock to increase water flow into the well. LinkPretty cool, eh?
However, while a great definition, you may still have some questions, such as:
What should you expect when preparing to have your well HYDRO-FRACKED by Capital Well?
