Wyoming To Lead Further Investigation Into Pavillion Water Concerns

"A federal environmental regulator will not finish and review a draft report tentatively linking hydraulic fracturing to Wyoming groundwater contamination and will instead allow state agencies to further investigate the issue."

"Wyoming state agencies will lead a new round of investigation and file a report concerning Pavillion-area water quality by Sept. 30, 2014.

In a media release issued today, the state of Wyoming announced it will undertake a new effort to evaluate water quality from certain domestic water wells and the mechanical integrity of some oil and gas wells and pits near Pavillion."
