Virginia’s state department of health gets it…
They’re telling well owners that the natural gas pipelines coming through their area may affect the health and quality of their water. That’s because of the blasting being done to lay the pipeline. The shock waves from the blasting could disrupt the ground which, in turn, could affect their well water.
They are urging these well owners to have their water tested to establish a baseline on its quality and safety.
That way, if and when the pipeline company does start blasting, the well owners can periodically have their water tested to see if conditions have changed.
