The Califonia State Water Resources Control Board (“Water Board” for short) recently finalized groundbreaking criteria for monitoring aquifers near soil fracking operations. Two years after Clean Water Action sponsored legislation to require aquifer testing before and after fracking California is poised to finally have the information we need to understand the impacts of oil and gas development on groundwater as protecting groundwater from Big Oil is key to California’s future. The new Groundwater Monitoring System Criteria outline oil and gas field monitoring rules including which chemicals will be investigated during monitoring, appropriate locations for monitoring wells, public reporting requirements and many other guidelines. The criteria specify both well by well monitoring that must occur when an operator fracks an individual or groups of wells, in addition to regional groundwater monitoring programs that the State Board will be developing over the coming years.
