In the event of an environmental emergency imminently threatening the safety of human life or where necessary to protect certain property, the EPA website will be updated with appropriate information. We’ve made some changes to EPA. If the information you are looking for is not here, you may be able to find it on the EPA Web Archive or the January 19, 2017 Web Snapshot. Public Input about Draft White Paper on Oil and Natural Gas Governance of Produced Water November 10, 2018 – EPA and the State of New Mexico have released a draft white paper for public review and input. The draft white paper clarifies the existing regulatory and permitting frameworks related to the way wastewater from oil and natural gas extraction activities can be re-used, recycled and renewed for other purposes in New Mexico. Learn more about the draft white paper. You can provide tips anonymously if you do not want to identify yourself.
Emergency events and spills or releases should be reported through the National Response Center at 1-800-424-8802. Unconventional oil and natural gas play a key role in our nation’s clean energy future. These technologies enable greater access to oil and natural gas in shale formations. We work with states and other key stakeholders to help ensure that the economic prosperity from unconventional oil and natural gas extraction does not come at the expense of public health and the environment. Our focus and obligations under the law are to provide oversight, guidance and, where appropriate, rulemaking and enforcement, that achieve the best possible protections for human health and the air, water and land where Americans live, work and play.
Departments of Energy and Interior and the U. Our study of hydraulic fracturing and its potential impact on drinking water resources: We studied the relationship between hydraulic fracturing for oil and natural gas and drinking water resources. The study includes a review of published literature, analysis of existing data, scenario evaluation and modeling, laboratory studies, and case studies. Air pollution resulting from the release of volatile organic compounds, hazardous air pollutants, and greenhouse gases. We have developed revised UIC Class II permitting guidance specific to oil and natural gas hydraulic fracturing activities using diesel fuels. Although developed specifically for hydraulic fracturing where diesel fuels are used, many of the guidance’s recommended practices are consistent with best practices for hydraulic fracturing in general, including those found in state regulations and model guidelines for hydraulic fracturing developed by industry and stakeholders.

Ensuring the safe management of wastewater, stormwater, and other wastes As the number of shale gas wells in the U. In many regions of the U. In some cases, operators use surface storage tanks and pits to temporarily store hydraulic fracturing fluids for re-use or until arrangements are made for disposal. In addition, other wastes are generated during the well drilling, stimulation, and production stages. Re-use of shale gas wastewater is, in part, dependent on the levels of pollutants in the wastewater and the proximity of other fracturing sites that might re-use the wastewater.
