We’ve prepared a fact sheet on underground injection wells and some key points you can use in your comments:

  • The injection well location is 0.25 miles from Alec Run, a native brook trout stream. Request water quality monitoring for Alec Run.
  • The injection well location is within a mile of the zone of peripheral concern for Buckhannon Water. Request the company send water quality monitoring results to the City of Buckhannon Water Department. 
  • The injection well location is close to several residences. Request the company conduct water quality monitoring in wells and springs that serve as drinking water for residents within a half mile of the injection well.
