Presentations on possible effect of oil and gas activity on ground and surface water

Dr. Wendling plans to discuss how groundwater moves between aquifers, and how drilling and fracking could impact aquifers and watersheds in northeast B.C.

He will first present in Fort St. John tonight, January 14, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Quality Inn Northern Grand, and then in Hudson's Hope on Wednesday, January 16 from 7 to 9 p.m. at the curling rink.
After his Hudson's Hope stop, there will be a discussion of an offer by a chemistry professor from the University of Alberta to analyze gas in domestic well water. Dr. K. Muehlenbachs proposes an "isotopic" analysis, which could document changes if a well has gassy water.
