Ohio family concerned over methane in water

Methan in waterWater is the enemy of fire, except in Jason Kline's house. When a flame gets near his faucet, a fireball erupts.  Around Christmas, the family noticed their water started fizzing.  When Jason's wife, Debby, lit a candle near the sink, they learned something was very wrong.

"Oh, I was so scared. It just was a huge explosion, the entire sink went up to the ceiling," Debby says. The Kline's water is full of methane gas and they're not sure why.

About six months ago, Mountaineer Keystone Oil and Gas company put in a drilling rig in a field catty-corner from the Kline house. The company paid for an EPA-certified test of the family's well water, which showed methane levels around nine, which is acceptable.

But in December, something changed after the drilling began.

"Methane levels have more than doubled and we're wondering if this is all just coincidental," Jason says.

TVNL Comment:  This is happening all over the country where hydraulic fracturing is taking place. This is NOT a coincidence. PLEASE watch the five minute video in this article and understand that fracking is coming to YOUR town soon. WE CAN STOP THIS DISASTROUS PROCESS.
