News Bulletin:

“PAVILLION, WYOMING — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has recommended that several Pavillion-area residents with private water wells find alternate sources of water for drinking and cooking.

“The recommendation applies to at least 20 water wells, and that number could increase, according to the EPA.

“EnCana Oil and Gas USA, which operates oil and gas wells interspersed throughout the farm and ranch community, has agreed to provide funding to a third party which will provide treatment or an alternate source of drinking water. However, details are not yet worked out.
The health concern is based on high sodium and sulfates that EPA officials believe are naturally occurring in the groundwater, and on the detection of petroleum compounds that officials believe shouldn’t be in the groundwater.”

Yep, Pavillion is 120 miles south of us in Meeteetse, WY. In the west, that distance is like two blocks in NYC.

This, after we dealt with the escaped prisoners who came over 1,000 miles to Yellowstone and Meeteetse after escaping in Arizona.

We’re gonna have a lottery on what’s next: locusts, or sand storms.
