A final report on foul-tasting well water in a rural Wyoming community has found that hydraulic fracturing probably didn’t cause the problem.
The controversy came as the process boosted oil and gas production and drove down costs for transportation and heating.
The EPA never finalized its Pavillion report and instead handed the investigation over to Wyoming.
After a two-year study, Wyoming officials said Thursday that bacteria might have tainted the wells in the Pavillion area.
