Hydrofracturing

Hydrofracturing, also known as "hydro-fracking," is a well development process that increases the flow of water from a bedrock well by increasing the size and extent of the bedrock fractures that bring water into the well.

The procedure involves subjecting the bedrock formation to water pressure sufficiently high enough to either extend existing bedrock fractures or create new ones.

This process is more cost-effective than drilling a well deeper. Water is injected into a low-yield water well at a high pressure and volume, opening up and cleaning out the existing fractures found in the rock.
