U.S. EPA FINES WESTERN FIRMS FOR VIOLATIONS ON NAVAJO NATION
 SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) today fined two companies $3,500 for violations of the Safe Drinking Water Act on the Navajo Nation.
 U.S. EPA fined Mountain States Petroleum, Rosewell N.M., $2,000; and Grand Resources Inc., Tulsa, Okla., $1,500.
 The companies failed to submit annual monitoring well reports to the U.S. EPA. The firms inject a briny wastewater from their oil and gas operations into underground wells. Monitoring reports show the integrity of the injection process, and if there is the potential for leakage of wastewater into groundwater supplies.
 The actions are part of joint U.S. EPA and Navajo Nation Environmental Protection Administration efforts to enforce environmental laws on Navajo Nation lands.
