Thursday on 5 News we told you six property owners in Doddridge County received some bad news from EQT. The natural gas company is suing them over allegations that they sunk water wells at their thousand acre farm.
The Heasters also had a plan to build a cabin on the site, for hunting purposes, but EQT wants them to drop all of those construction plans.
Under state law, gas companies can't drill within 250 feet of an existing water well or spring that we can use for drinking water.
