This is excerpted from the news article: State: Energy firm contaminated well, spring
Cabot spokesman Ken Komoroski said the company has not confirmed the source of the fluid, but has confirmed that “Cabot activities are not the source.”
Komoroski said Cabot checked with its “independent third-party consultant,” which concluded that “the observance of black water in the well did not and could not have occurred as a result of Cabot activities” based on “observation and extensive analytical testing.” He said the well and spring contained “total and fecal coliform, which is indicative of human or animal waste” and that “the materials that exist in the well in high concentrations don’t exist on Cabot locations.”
Asked if any of the materials Cabot uses were found in the well, Komoroski said the company does not yet have all analytical results from lab tests and a final report is still in draft form. DEP continues to investigate the incident and Cabot will continue to cooperate and support the department’s efforts, he said.
So let’s get this straight. Cabot denies wrongdoing before all the reports are in????….Oh I forgot (touch to the forehead) – the Halliburton loophole… sorry … there is really no way for me to ever know… is there? You made sure of that.
Not for long though, when democracy has its day.
