Baucum oilfield waste injection well lawsuit advances in Laurel, Mississippi
This article updates a blog post from 2014 on the oilfield waste deep injection well on land next to Marlan and Deidra Baucum's home in Laurel, Mississippi. The Jones County Circuit Court decided that it will hear Mrs. Baucum's claims for damage to her health. She is able to avoid presenting these claims to the Mississippi Oil and Gas Board. This agency process can be a quagmire of delay and frustration for a person making a damage claim due to the actions of a company that the Board regulates.
