From the Associated Press:
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has once again extended the public comment period for its study of groundwater pollution in a central Wyoming gas field.
The comment period for the EPA investigation in Pavillion was scheduled to end Tuesday but has been extended until Sept. 30. The comment period was extended twice last year.
The EPA theorized over a year ago that hydraulic fracturing may have played a role in the pollution.
The federal agency says the longer comment period will allow more time for people to weigh in on the testing.
The Casper Star-Tribune reports both a landowner with contaminated groundwater and the owner of the Pavillion gas field, Encana Oil and Gas, object to extending the comment period. Both sides say they want the studies to wrap up.
