An update is posted at the Drinking Water Advisor about the EPA’s interpretation of the results from the EPA well testing in Pavillion, WY. Pavillion is located in the Wind River Basin of western Wyoming where drilling for natural gas and oil has increased substantially in the last decade.
EPA’s Lisa Jackson has stated the test results are concerning since 2-Butoxyethanol was found in some of the samples and is a known component of hydraulic fracturing (fracking) processes.
The video posted is dated December 8, 2011 and records Jim Inhofe, US Senator (OK) refuting the EPA’s findings and accusing the EPA of biased research, and “cutting corners.”
The original video is posted on Inhofe’s Press Office YouTube channel.
