Screen shot 2016-03-11 at 11.50.35 AMScreen shot 2016-03-11 at 11.49.38 AMScreen shot 2016-03-11 at 11.44.49 AMScreen shot 2016-03-11 at 11.26.02 AMHere is the link to the original LABC reports/blog on the frack spill that contained top flow and some produced waters…. the well control team had mud brought in to kill the well and when it was all under control, Terracon tested the mud and the top soil was removed and pending the disposition of the mud, sent to the land fill called Tervita in Larado in Johnson County.

Testing was said to include TPH using EPA method 1005

RCRA for 8 metals using EPA method 6010/7471

The RCRA 8 metals are,

  • Arsenic (As),
  • Barium (Ba),
  • Cadmium (Cd),
  • Chromium (Cr),
  • Lead (Pb),
  • Mercury (Hg),
  • Selenium (Se), and
  • Silver (Ag).


Total Chlorides using EPA method 9056A and

SPLP (Synthetic Precipitation Leach Procedure) Chlorides using EPA method 9056A/1312


In looking at the Terracon results…I don’t see NORM results.. and remember that MUD was brought IN to the site to kill the well….what was the mud testing results?
