This sounds similar to the water contamination near the Schlumberger facility in Midland.
DUNCAN, Okla. — Officials with the Houston-based energy company Halliburton have met with Duncan residents to discuss the contamination of water on the company’s property in the area.
The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality found perchlorate in 18 wells on the property. Perchlorate can reduce the thyroid’s production of hormones and KSWO reports that the company on Tuesday told residents not to use the water in any way that it may be consumed.
Halliburton is providing bottled water and says it will reimburse health costs to those affected by the contamination. The company has said it’s working with DEQ to resolve the contamination.
The company says it believes the contamination is the result of burning missile fuel in a project that ended 20 years ago.
Halliburton was founded in Duncan in 1919.
