Natural gas from hydraulic fracturing has contaminated a drinking-water aquifer in Parker County, putting two homes at risk of explosion and triggering a federal emergency order, the EPA said Tuesday.

The Environmental Protection Agency issued an emergency order yesterday accusing a natural gas driller of contaminating water supplies in North Texas and giving the company 48 hours to provide potable water to those affected.

The EPA said it decided to investigate after receiving complaints from residents regarding concerns with drinking water and learned that neither the company nor the state regulatory agency had adequately addressed those concerns.

The order comes amid a clash between the EPA and the state of Texas over air pollution standards.
