Nature, not hydraulic fracturing, is to blame for smelly water in Pavilion, Wyoming, said Encana Corp. on Tuesday.…On Tuesday afternoon the Washington, D.C. based environmental agency defended its findings, reiterating the chemicals found were common to hydraulic fracturing, were not naturally occurring, and had been used in the Pavillion field. The EPA also disputed the two monitoring wells drilled in October 2010 and April 2011 had contaminated the aquifer, saying chemicals detected in the tests were not used in well construction.
