The Manning House
We visit the Franklin Forks, Pennsylvania home of Tammy and Matt Manning, who sued natural gas drilling company WPX after their well water came back positive for high levels of methane after hydrofracking began near their house. "One day my wife flushed the toilet and she hollered, 'Our water's black,'" said Matt Manning. "Our well had highly explosive levels of methane. The gas company claims it's natural migration. But there's people living in my town for 20 years. All of a sudden their water goes bad and our water goes bad, and it's only a matter of days after they frack the two wells on either side of us? Put two and two together." For the past year, Matt Manning has picked up gallon jugs of water for his family to use in everyday life.
