Black Water - Marcellus Shale Reality Tour Part 11

Black Water - Marcellus Shale Reality Tour Part 11

GADCLuzerneCountyGADCLuzerneCounty·156 videoshttp://www.gdacoalition.org A video by Scott Cannon
This is the story of Max Chilson. His water turned black a year and a half ago, the same day a nearby gas well started drilling about 1,200 feet from his home. He hasn't had clean well water to drink ever since.

Chief Oil and Gas, who owns 2 wells on both sides of his property, wanted him to sign an agreement that would provide him a bigger UV water filtration system, $300 worth of filters, and denies any present or future responsibilities for Max's water turning black.

The DEP told Max that the black water didn't happen because of gas drilling activies, nor did they give him any explanation of why it happened. The DEP has come under fire recently for providing test results that didn't disclose all of the contaminants found in well water samples. Additionally, In a legal deposition, a DEP employee said the department failed to provide its water specialists with training to help them interpret the lab reports and identify contaminants that could signal Marcellus Shale-related impacts. The DEP says it fully stands behind it's tests.

Many things contaminate surface water which eventually sinks down into our aquifers. How many are concerned about them or have their water tested to the enth degree periodically? Even water that tastes great has chemicals and bacteria in it.
Was this water Tier III tested with a chain-of-custody established by a board certified lab? I don't know. Was that wording in his lease?
Attend one of Jim Clark's talks and learn more before hypothesizing the cause of all this.

What does that have to do with Penn dot?

8:21 so, your saying this contamination was not caused by the drilling 1200 feet from his well? water was fine until they started drilling? i have personally been involved with the dep on nuerous occasions concerning contaminated wells, and its the same runaround the dep hope you will get tired of trying to fight for your damages and just go away. dep is a very corrupt beauracracy bottom line is this take the drilling co. to court and let 12 peers decide. this is more than a coincident just one more water well contaminated. and its not the last

February 1, 2013 at 8:21:00 PM Are you saying Jim Clark would have explained it away? Perhaps it's just one of those one in a million coincidences that his well water went bad when the nearby well was fracked?

Mr Realistic said...

The only way to win this argument is to compare the new test results to the ones that were taken of the water before the drilling started. Oh.....didn't have that done? Then you're just dumb. There are literally dozens of reasons that this well could have went bad.....or maybe it really wasn't that good in the first place. At this point it's just his word against theirs.
