DALLAS, Texas (1080 KRLD) – Is there a link between between water injection wells used by the oil and gas industry and the small earthquakes that have been happening near Eagle Mountain Lake? Many people who live in and around Azle believe that there is.
SMU Associate Professor Dr. Heather DeShon says more information is needed to determine if those suspicions are correct.
“My null hypothesis is that they are related to oil and gas activity, but I do not have the evidence to support that hypothesis yet,” says DeShon. “That is the point of the study.”
