CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — New groundwater sampling data from the U.S. Geological Survey hasn’t changed the minds of environmentalists and the petroleum industry about any damage done by hydraulic fracturing to the groundwater in Wyoming.

Pavillion gas field operator Encana says the new data still shows that drilling and fracking didn’t affect the groundwater.
