Water Contamination Claims


All facets of oil and gas development, from drilling, to hydraulic fracturing, to pipeline construction and installation are intensive uses of the land. Sometimes, a side effect of these activities is an impact on landowners’ water supplies, whether used for domestic use or for agriculture. Sometimes, the quality of a water supply may be impacted. Other times, the volume of water flow from a well or a spring may be reduced. Houston Harbaugh’s oil and gas attorneys have experience with all aspects of water impacts related to oil and gas development and can assist landowners with navigating the complexities of state environmental regulations and pursuing claims against the party responsible for the water impact.
