May 30 — The affected area could not be physically inspected because the road to the site was under water. A licensed RRC pilot launched a drone and determined a possible source of release using aerial and thermal images. The operator was contacted and sent personnel to the site by boat. The personnel took multiple samples from all over the well pad for analysis. The wellbore has been dug out and is being monitored for leakage.
