The operators are “ignoring the terms of permits.”
LITTLE ROCK — Evidence of environmental contamination has been discovered at 11 permitted “land farms” where water used in natural gas drilling is stored, the state Department of Environmental Quality said Monday.
At each of the sites, ADEQ found that contaminated fluids had run off into nearby creeks or streams and chloride concentrations in surrounding soil were abnormally high, according to a release.
Arkansas seems to be doing a much better job of protecting their water than Texas does. They are even adding fencing requirements to keep wildlife (and cattle?) from being exposed.
