with oil and gas operations in these states. Examples of land contamination include:
- Ruts and trenches
- Mud pits and slush pits
- Leakage from holding containers

Examining the Harmful Effects of Land Contamination
Many harmful effects are caused when hydrocarbons, metals, salts, and various
forms of toxic waste are not properly cleaned from drill sites. Rivers,
underground wells, aquifers, ditches, creeks, lakes, and other water sources
can be damaged by contaminants.
Soil can also be damaged, mitigating plant growth for years. People can
even fall ill as a result of contact with a large amount of these harmful
contaminants. If you are facing a similar situation, you should learn
