Where you are more likely to see litigation is as a result of engineering failures (well casing) and atmospheric pollution which have been cited in the US as being the cause of serious and sometimes fatal health impacts. Of course proving these in the Fylde may be problematic when, for example the government do not insist that the baseline studies by the BGS should cover the our area. Crazy but true.

The significance of the largest, magnitude 2.3 is that it damaged the well itself – both the steel pipe and the cement casing – so the integrity of the well would seem to be at risk already. The tremors are significant, just not in the way reported by the media. Reply Link Name Email Cancel reply Threaded commenting powered by interconnect/it code.
