Natural gas industry keeping water testing data from researchers

Natural gas industry keeping water testing data from researchers

Despite having complained for years that studies on the effect of hydrofracking on drinking water supplies are deficient because they don’t include pre-drilling water quality data on wells and water systems, the natural gas industry has been keeping that data away from researchers.

Geological Survey releases system offering models on nutrient pollution action

Geological Survey releases system offering models on nutrient pollution action

The United States Geological Survey has released an interactive online decision support system that allows users access to six newly developed regional models describing how rivers receive and transport nutrients from natural and human sources to sensitive waters. The SPARROW (SPAtially Referenced Regressions On Watershed attributes) system models have been developed for seven large regions of the U.S., and can be used to compare nutrient sources and watersheds in areas such as the South Atlantic and the Gulf of Mexico. The model was developed by the Geological Survey’s National Water Quality Assessment Program, which “provides information about water-quality conditions and how natural features and human activities affect those conditions.” Federal, regional and state agencies have used the SPARROW model results to inform water-quality management decisions

Minnesota Family Council, NOM: Lobbying rules complaint was harassment

Minnesota Family Council, NOM: Lobbying rules complaint was harassment

The Minnesota Family Council, the National Organization for Marriage and Common Cause Minnesota have all weighed in on a complaint that was dismissed by the Minnesota Campaign Finance and Public Disclosure Board last week. The Minnesota Family Council and NOM said they were victims of the complaint, which was filed by Common Cause Minnesota, and characterized it as harassment, intimidation and an “attack.” Common Cause said the complaint highlights a loophole in Minnesota’s lobbying laws. Minnesota for Marriage, a partnership between NOM and the Minnesota Family Council, released a statement on Monday that “calls on opponents to abandon tactics of intimidation and harassment.” “Sadly, complaints like these are too often used as bludgeons by political groups to silence, harass, intimidate and drain the resources of their opponents,” said Minnesota Family Council CEO John Helmberger
