Weatherford, Texas residents Steven and Shyla Lipsky have filed a lawsuit claiming over $6.5 million in damages from contamination of the potable water supply caused by nearby fracking. The lawsuit names Weatherford-based Silverado on the Brazos Development Company #1 LTD and Fort Worth-based drilling company Range Production Company and Range Resources Corporation (“Range”).

The lawsuit says that the Lipskys spent five years and $4.5 million dollars building their dream home, and now have to ship water in because their well water is no longer usable. This, the lawsuit says, has significantly decreased the value of their home.

The lawsuit also alleges that defendants Silverado on the Brazos Development Co. told them years before they built, that no oil or gas drilling would be allowed near the development.

Attorneys for the Lipskys said that “The developers broke their promise to prohibit gas extraction in the community, and Range refuses to admit that its actions contributed to the Lipskys water problem. They all need to be held accountable.”

The lawsuit seeks $6,500,000 in property losses and other damages, as well as punitive damages and attorney fees.
