This presentation uses a coalbed methane pilot project in southeastern British Columbia (Canada) to highlight some of the issues related to toxicity of CBM produced water.  The case study also discusses regulatory negligence with respect to the project, and how the province of BC allowed and continues to allow the project to proceed without CBM regulations in place.
