Years ago a lot of wells around our farm were ruined/went dry after fracking in nearby oil field. We were told that the oil operations had nothing to do with our wells. That made us feel ever so much better, because we knew that they would not lie to us.

Everytime a well goes in around here, there's a mad rush to have water tests done before & after the drilling. It's made the gas co. a little more aware of things..., not care more, just that they know they're gonna pay for damages if the proofs there.

My Dad recently signed a land lease agreement with a gas Co. At my behest, he requested...and received..a clause in the contract that if anything at all happens to the quality or quantity of his water supply, they are liable to fix it in whatever way is necessary.

I worked in and around the oil field for about 20 yrs, and have seen a lot of tricks pulled. By all means, get samples of your water run, not just for bacteria, but a good range of VOCs [volatile organics]. Also, be aware that small gas and oil companies jump in and out of business rather often. Also be aware of the company that might be sub-contracting for the day to day operations of the well itself. When ever something is going on, don't be afraid to ask what they are doing. You may receive a generic answer, but like you said, they become aware that they are being watched.

One of the main problems can occur many years down the road when the surface pipe corrodes and can leak into the aquifier. The surface pipe being what protects water wells etc. This pipe is cemented and sealed, top and bottom,to the surrounding rock,soil and when the well is done away with for any reason is completely filled and plugged with cemented.

Overall, the best thing to do is what you are doing, Make them aware that you are watching.

My 2cents worth, George
