Fracking near Pawhuska raises concerns

Fracking near Pawhuska raises concerns by Sara Goldenberg, May 10, 2012,
Two new oil rigs under construction near Pawhuska have some residents raising concerns. Encana Natural Gas held an open house for residents Thursday night to address them. … They’ll use hydraulic fracking to extract oil from hundreds of feet below the ground. “No, we don’t want this. It’s enough. Let’s look at other things to bring money and jobs to our people,” said resident Sheryl Hill. The oil well sites are just a few miles away from Lake Pawhuska. In fact, the lake will play a key role in drilling. Encana is paying the city to pump more than two million gallons of water from the lake. It will be sent through a pipeline to the oil well sites for drilling.
