I keep reading about fracking and cases of contaminated water supplies. I would like to know if there is quantitative evidence of fracking being more disruptive to people's lives in the areas of extraction, compared to crude oil, coal and non-fracking natural gas.

For example, are there more cases of fracking-related contaminated water supplies than crude oil extraction? Coal?
