No Contamination from Fayetteville Shale Exploration Found in Sampled Wells (02/04/2013 )
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - A study that examined the water quality of 127 shallow domestic wells in the Fayetteville Shale natural gas production area of Arkansas found no groundwater contamination associated with gas production, according to a report released today by the U.S. Geological Survey.
AR USGS Gas Shale water quality broadcast (01/23/2013 )
Domestic water wells in proximity to natural gas drilling sites in north central Arkansas are the subject of a newly released regional baseline study. The collaborative project, coordinated by the Arkansas U.S. Geological Survey Groundwater Resources Program was the first of its kind in the nation. And as Jacqueline Froelich reports, the results were surprising.
