In a statement released this week, Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton specifically named Johnson County as an area potentially at risk for non-natural earthquakes caused by injection well activity.

The Railroad Commission plans to collaborate with three research groups, the Bureau of Economic Geology and the Center for Integrated Seismicity Research and the Texas Seismometer Network, according to the release, “to better understand both naturally occurring and potentially induced seismicity and the associated risks.”
