Pennsylvania DEP Releases Water Contamination Report

08.29.14 | Terry Diener

After years of delays and confusion Pennsylvania has released details of 243 cases where regulators determined that oil or natural gas drilling or related activities ruined private drinking water wells.
The Department of Environmental Protection on Thursday released links to the documents. The Associated Press and other news outlets have waged legal battles for several years seeking the records. DEP had previously given some documents to different news organizations, but had never released a comprehensive list.
