Southern Oklahoma residents fight planned disposal well
Marshall County residents are trying to block a proposed wastewater disposal well near Madill.
Our concern is that this disposal well somehow contaminates our water well.”
Attorney James Peters, who represents about a dozen Marshall County residents, questioned whether Bosque will be able to drill the well on the irregular, pie-shaped tract of land it owns.
Stromberg said the project likely would be abandoned if a drilling rig will not fit on the site.
Robert Campbell, a petroleum geologist hired by the residents opposed to the project, said he thinks regulators need more information about how the well will be constructed before they can rule on Bosque's application.
“There's just so many uncertainties,” he said. “No one seems to be very certain about anything.”
After hearing from seven witnesses Friday, administrative law judge Michael Norris took the case under advisement.
He said the case included a number of complex issues.
In the Marshall County case, Bosque has filed a motion to dismiss, but it has not been heard by a judge, according to court records.
