Free webinar Wed. on well water tests near fracking

The National Ground Water Association will present a free webinar at 1 p.m. EDT Wednesday on testing well water near hydraulic fracturing. Participants "will learn guidelines for conducting baseline testing of your well water before hydraulic fracturing activity begins, and post-hydraulic fracturing water testing," according to a news release. "You also will learn the basics of the hydraulic fracturing process, including chemicals used, and how various states are approaching well water testing in relation to hydraulic fracturing."

The webinar, which will be available online after the presentation, will be presented by Dr. Robert Puls, director of the Oklahoma Water Survey and associate professor in the College of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences at the University of Oklahoma. Puls formerly worked for the Environmental Protection Agency at the Ground Water and Ecosystems Restoration Division of the National Risk Management Research Laboratory.
