Should You Trust a Study On Drinking Water? Or, Filter and Make Your Own Alkaline Water.
Drinking water is not something to mess around with. Whatever you want to call me, paranoid, aluminum foil hat wearing weirdo, etc...if money is at the center of anything (which it is), the well-being of an individual will be sacrificed.
In West Texas, there are communities that are scared of the water that comes out of their tap. Purchasing drinking water from the grocery store is a normal daily habit. I think a better option is to be in control of the filtration process to be sure your family is getting the best water possible. See options here.

EPA's Study of Hydraulic Fracturing and Its Potential Impact on Drinking Water Resources
Study of the Potential Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing on Drinking Water Resources: Progress Report.
At the request of Congress, EPA is conducting a study to better understand any potential impacts of hydraulic fracturing on drinking water and ground water. The scope of the research includes the full lifespan of water in hydraulic fracturing.
The first progress report was released in December 2012. A final draft report is expected to be released for public comment and peer review in 2014.
