No conclusive evidence that the increased methane in the well water is related to fracking - yet the article's title is Flaming water wells? High methane levels in Texas water linked to frackingThe Railroad Commission’s tests found Lipsky’s water contained 8.6 milligrams per liter of methane, not quite the federal limit of 10. Yet separate tests by a researcher at the University of Texas-Arlington found 83 milligrams per liter in the water, an incredibly high count.
Nonetheless,.. WTF Texas? I thought no one was suppose to mess with you. Yet, your water is being poisoned, chemicals are being dumped on your roads by these fracking companies... does anyone care??After measuring gas content in his water well, state regulators said that while methane concentration in Lipsky’s water was up, the chemical makeup of the methane was inconclusive. Thus, the source of the gas remains a mystery, according to the state.
