Drilling for oil and the fracking process can cause the land to become contaminated with toxins. This can blight the ground and lead to water contamination. Industrial work can also release hazardous vapors into the air, posing the risk of illness to all those nearby. Even more serious is the fact that oil drilling often involves the use of chemicals that are known carcinogens. Furthermore, drilling for oil can release radioactive material contained in geological material.
Other forms of contamination include failing to clean up waste or remove damaged machinery. These issues can reduce the value of your property, as no one will want to buy your land if it is near these contaminated areas.
Industrial companies are required to abide by regulations contained in The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), which outlines standards that help prevent unnecessary contamination. Failure to abide by these regulations is a form of negligence, which is a requirement for having grounds to sue.
