Re: the other side
Caution, OPINION ONLY
Being involved with this industry and knowing the regulatory agency and company involved, it is my opinion, that Dimick was an over reaction by an inexperienced group of inspectors in that area and agency attorneys at the highest level that needed to DO SOMETHING because of all the reporters spreading bad/false information. In my opinion, a mistake, and now you will never get anyone to admit it.
There probably was some disturbance of water supplies while drilling through the aquifers but no poisons or toxic substances are left to ruin these wells and no leaking continues to this day. What these companies did was brought attention to the shallow methane issue and a handfull of homeowners are keeping this issue alive because it is their cause célèbre.
