the quakes we have had here can be heard like a boom we are about 3 miles northeast of keeene and there have been 7 wells drilled in the last couple of months never heard any quakes ever till after the fracturing process and from what i read the quakes that can be heard are shallow.fracturing occures about a mile deep and fromwhat i understand the injection is quit a bit deeper.the closest injection sites are about 5 miles south of here.does it not make sense that fracturing the shale at a shallower depth is the cause?neighbors here can here the boom and ahaking while friends west of here about 3 miles may or may not hear them.
