Gasholes sue to stop a man from putting a water well on his own property

So much for property rights


MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) EQT Corp. is suing six West Virginia property owners who subverted the company's plans to put five gas wells on a 1,000-acre farm by sinking water wells on the site first.

Under state law, gas companies can't drill within 250 feet of an existing water well or spring used for human consumption.

Landowner Charles Heaster says he plans to build a cabin on the site. He says he doesn't want EQT to destroy another 50 acres of his farm near West Union.

Pennsylvania-based EQT wants a federal judge to issue an injunction ordering Heaster to plug and abandon the water well, and drop his construction plans for the cabin.
