Weston Solutions & Chesapeake Release Bradford County Test Results For Split Samples Of EPA Fracking Study

On behalf of Chesapeake Energy, Weston Solutions ran tests on split water samples at 14 water wells and 1 spring, where EPA is also testing water in Bradford County, as part of its Congressionally mandated hydraulic fracturing study.  The results are released in the following massive, 360-page document:
http://www.chk.com/News/Articles/Documents/20120529_CHK_WestonStudy_BradfordPA.pdf.

Weston states in the executive summary that the testing found no contamination due to gas drilling. Methane, chloride, sodium, barium were among the contaminants for which testing was run. I have not yet done a full review of the document and would be interested in any observations others may have.
