(Pitchengine Communities) * (Pavillion, Wyo.) - The lead author of the Environmental Protection Agency report that indicated water well contamination may have occurred from fracking in the East Pavillion Natural Gas Field, has issued an independent report confirming the agency's initial findings. The Standford University study, reported in the journal *Environmental Science and Technology* and published Tuesday, indicated deep aquifers have been impacted by fracking, but that shallow water well contamination most likely resulted from unlined oil and waste water pits.
