Health Impacts of Colorado Fracking Leak Unclear

Feb 14, 2013
(The Coloradoan)

The gushing fracking water leak has stopped, but many questions remain about its impact.

It took at least 20 people to wrest control of the oil and gas well that spewed a horizontal geyser of green-tinted fracking water for more than 30 hours Monday and Tuesday about four miles east of Fort Collins.

After that crew gained control around 4 p.m. Tuesday, well operator PDC Energy has five days to file a final report to state oil and gas regulators detailing the cause and impact of the accident, PDC Energy Vice President Bart Brockman said Wednesday.
