wwhickok, thanks for that honest fact. Of course most spills go unreported. Why would they vonunteer that info when it would just give them a black eye. No, instead, they ignore it and one of these days it is going to be near your children's well water.....just sayin'.....

What, you want a gas company to take responsbility for a leak or contamination of well water...you will never see that...just look at the poor people of Dimock, and soon it will be that way around here with locals who have water wells. And why does the judge need more time? Makes me wonder who is getting paid what!

I know someone who works for one of the Gas companies, actually, I know more than a few someone's. Each of them have told me that these "spills" are not rare. The discovery or honesty of them however is.

A tank they own and are responsible for leaked. Regardless of whether they intended to spill the fluid is not relevant. They were obligated to make certain it did not happen and they did not do that. It happened and they are responsible. This industry spends millions denying responsibility for their actions so they can continue to pollute our environment in the effort to make money. They need to take responsibility to make sure this does not happen. The problem is they can't. They know they can't make certain there is no impact from their actions and still make a profit.
