In an article published in the Winter 2014 edition of Natural Resources & Environment, Stoel Rives attorneys Michael Mills and Robin Seifried discuss how current and proposed regulatory schemes address the fracking wastewater management.
Part one defines fracking wastewater; part two explains the environmental impacts associated with the management of fracking wastewater; part three discusses existing federal laws governing the management of fracking wastewater. The article concludes with a status update on efforts to impose more stringent rules on fracking wastewater management at the federal and state level and the potential impact of these efforts on the oil and gas industry.
