Benzene levels in Parachute Creek rose above a safe-to-drink 5 parts per billion following the spill, which was caused by a faulty pressure gauge on a four-inch pipeline.
The safety limit for benzene in Coloradoan drinking water sources is 5 parts per billion. But the state doesn’t define the creek as a source of drinking water, and the limit for such water bodies is 5,300 parts per billion.
Not drinking water not polluted above the levels safe for not drinking water.
These people are really desperate about fracking aren\’t they?
I\’m rather wondering when they\’re going to start complaining that only metres, mere yards, off the coasts of America the water has more Na and Cl in it than is allowed in drinking water.
