DEP OIL DRILLING-TRX-PKG


All over Collier County people are asking questions about oil drilling -

now the State DEP is demanding answers.

Herschel Vinyard

DEP Secretary

55:24 the people in collier county are frustrated and I'm frustrated too:27

Last week the Department of Environmental Protection wrote to the Dan A Hughes Company with a list of demands they must meet by July 15.

The texas-based company is accused of using illegal fracking methods to drill at a site near Immokalee -

so the state wants more testing and transparency.

Vinyard

55:15

We have outstanding laboratories and we're gonna continue to sample. We're not leaving collier county

Dan A. Hughes responded saying they were surprised by the demands - and they're working on more public outreach.

But a local environmental group says it's the DEP that needs to be held accountable -

saying their groundwater testing isn't accurate.

Jennifer Hecker

Conservancy of Southwest Florida

58:25

It's practically the last place one would look to find this type of contamination:29

Tomorrow the conservancy of southwest florida will present these concerns before the collier county commission.

Though the state tested the water and found it safe -

the conservancy says any possible contaminants from these fracking like methods would be deeper into the ground than where they've tested.

Jennifer Hecker

Conservancy of Southwest Florida

07:56

It's really Russian roulette with our water supply:58 I mean you can't afford an accident in an aquifer that we really upon for our drinking water:04

The state says their tests are based in science -

and future tests will drill deeper.

Meanwhile - drilling continues at this site -

and a permit for the Dan A Hughes company to drill in Golden Gate is still pending.

FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

TUESDAY'S RAIN PROSPECTS

Scattered showers and thunderstorms continue moving across Southwest Florida this evening. Compliments of the cloud cover left over from storms early on Monday, temperatures in the afternoon were held at bay, only topping out in the 80s, well below what's considered seasonal.

Overnight tonight temperatures are expected to retreat into the low to mid 70s.

The weather setup for Tuesday looks a bit similar to Monday. Again we will have steering winds with a south and southwesterly component to them. Added to the fact that higher resolution forecast models place some showers in the Gulf of Mexico early on Tuesday, we'll need to account for the chance for some rain in the morning, mainly along the coastline.

As the afternoon progresses, the inland areas of the state should bear the greatest coverage of showers and thunderstorms. Toward Tuesday evening, it is a possibility that some showers or isolated storms could push a touch closer toward the US 41 corridor.

For the duration of the work week, a more typical July weather streak looks to get set up with late afternoon and evening showers and storms. Temperatures from Wednesday onward look seasonal in the afternoons topping out near 92 degrres. Return to index of stories...
