With articles like this, you’ve got to wonder.
Hydraulic fracturing involves the use of millions of gallons of water, chemicals and sand.
Occasionally, some of that sand is radioactive.
Oh. You don’t say.
The state is investigating a possible inappropriate dumping of fracking-related radioactive sand into an unpermitted pit at an EOG Resources oil well in northern Weld County northwest of Grover.
The radioactive sand dumping occurred March 8 during a state field inspection of an oil well known as the Garden Creek 28-07H well, the Coloradoan’s search of state oil well inspection records revealed.
