Babst Calland: House Democrats Encourage USEPA Investigations of Alleged Water Contamination

By Meredith Odato Graham

On April 1, 2014, a group of eight U.S. House Democrats sent a letter to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) urging the agency to address alleged water contamination near drilling sites in Dimock, Pennsylvania; Pavillion, Wyoming; and Parker County, Texas.  The congressmen acknowledged that states act as a “major source” of regulations for the oil and gas industry, but expressed their belief that USEPA ”has a key role to play in oil and gas development.”
