Texas failed to get federal approval to inject oil and gas drilling waste into groundwater
from The Dallas Morning News
The Texas Railroad Commission has let the petroleum industry inject oil and gas waste into groundwater for decades without the required federal approval, a national environmental group says. Officials with Clean Water Action said the failure of oversight on the part of the state and federal governments may have contaminated future drinking water sources. No evidence of contamination has been found, but little documentation is available to prove or disprove negative effects.
