Natural gas has contaminated another aquifer and private water wells. Over 200 residents were evacuated on a day very close to the anniversary of the cattle deaths. Residents who depend on the Carisso Wilcox Aquifer are now left wondering what they will do without water.
Evacuations to last another 24 hours for S. Caddo residents.
CADDO PARISH, LA (KSLA) – Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator says it will be at least another 24 hours before residents evacuated from parts of S. Caddo Parish can return home.
During a morning news conference, Prator said the DEQ had been monitoring the contaminated wells and that so far there was “not much progress.” DEQ will continue to test the contaminated wells during the day.
Prator also said more residents could get well contamination notices depending on what the testing shows.
Several videos available.
It defies all logic and reason to believe that this won’t or hasn’t happened here. We already have a methane seep.
UPDATE: Officials expanding water testing area

Where is Williams spouting how there has never been one case of water contamination? This is at least the 50th I've read since I have "educated" myself, as the pro-dillers constantly demand I do. Funny thing is, I supported them MORE BEFORE I did so. Maybe they should encourage apathy instead.
Aquifers are dead serious. This wiil be big.
Our WATER is ruined by BIG GAS and other activites in TX. No help from the RRC or the WCEQ! We have no help what-so-ever! That's the way it is!
I am surprised this gas company admitted to anything. WOW!
