GWPC is pleased to announce the availability of Opportunities to Protect Drinking Water and Advance Watershed Goals Through the Clean Water Act: A Toolkit for State, Interstate, Tribal and Federal Water Program Managers.” This Toolkit is designed to enable state and EPA water quality practitioners to better protect drinking water supplies using regulatory and non-regulatory provisions of the Clean Water Act and achieve mutual goals – better protected sources of drinking water and improved water quality.  
 

State Oil & Gas Regulations Designed to Protect Water Resources: 2014 Edition

The Ground Water Protection Council report is an update to our 2009 report and includes an overview of 2013 groundwater protection rules in 27 states that account for more than 98 percent of the country’s oil and gas production. In addition to the most up-to-date accounting of state regulatory activities, the report includes a series of items states might consider when evaluating and revising their rules and policies regarding hydraulic fracturing, chemical disclosure, storage and spill prevention.
