EDIT: It’s actually Cooke County. I forgot that the mine was located very near the Montague/Cooke County line. So EOG moved the office/address of the mine slightly so they could avoid regulation by the Upper Trinity Groundwater Conservation District. At the time, Cooke County didn’t have a GWCD.
I’m scratching my head on this one. So many questions…
- Can elected officials cut a deal like this that effects public health, safety and air and water quality and keep it secret from the public? (naive of me to ask)
- How long will it take Enron Oil & Gas (EOG) to sign the agreement?
- What does the rest of the article say?
I’ve blogged about this frack sand mine before.
