"The director of the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission says the mystery of the flammable water from a Fort Lupton-area well has been partially solved.
Director David Neslin told the commission Tuesday that nearby gas wells were replugged and tests showed methane gas was not to blame.
'I don't know that we solved the mystery, but we evaluated all the wells in a half-mile radius and determined that the wells are operating properly. The wells were not the source of the gas,' Neslin said. 'We don't believe there is a current leak or problem that endangers public safety.'"
And all my American friends were "Yep. All good. Dead fish on the beach is normal."
Just wondering, is this still the case? And any other background on this.
Insurers and other fire-safety advocates soon joined the cause. In 1959, the British Standards Institution took up the torch: "In order to avoid any possible ambiguity, it is the Institution's policy to encourage the use of the terms 'flammable' and 'non-flammable' rather than 'inflammable' and 'non-inflammable.'"
