Brian Frank

Brian Frank was trained in Hydrogeology. He writes to raise public awareness of the quiet destruction of the life-sustaining natural resources around us. It began with research he did on a municipal groundwater supply as a graduate student. That aquifer was pollutedwith industrial solvents and road salt. It was nearly dried up, shockingly unrecognizable compared to descriptions of it 100 years earlier, That contrast permanently changed Brian. He has been writing eversince as he is discovering groundwater problems wherever he goes. He has written about his radioactive tap water in Bridgeton, NJ, his lead contaminated water in Millville, NJ and his pesticide-contaminated water in Vineland, NJ. He has written for the Examiner, Earth Island Press and his own blog, subsurfacestories.wordpress.com, about geoscience and human health. Brian presented his research at the Passaic River Institute’s environmental symposium in 2012. He has also been a physical therapist for 28 years and specializes in rehabilitating people with age-related diseases.
