EPA distributes Pavillion drinking water contamination report
August 25, 2009
Late last night, we finally received the public release of the EPA's investigation into alleged drinking water contamination by hydraulic fracturing toxics in Pavillion, Wyoming.
As we noted in our press release, and in our response to industry criticism of our release, as a next step the EPA is now attempting to trace the source of the contamination -- including EnCana's nearby oil and gas drilling operations.
