EPA Update on Gas Well Leak

A spokesman for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says Chesapeake Energy Inc. has informed them that the company has sent the requested information about the spill of thousands of gallons of fracking water at a Marcellus Shale drilling site in Bradford County.
David Sternberg told WDUQ News this morning that Chesapeake Energy has told the agency that they overnighted a CD with the information that was requested. The EPA had wanted the information by yesterday but Sternberg says even though they haven't received the data yet, the agency considers the company "to be in compliance" with the request.
