Two weeks ago, and with just 7-9 days left to make comments, - Clarification language was added by DOGGR that an aquifer deemed exempt under the U.S. Safe Drinking Water Act is not protected water. Much of this comes from the Underground Injection Program, basically left out of the 'new' fracking regulations.
