Frackers & Fruckers Unite To Pollute Pennsylvania

Trio charged with illegal frack water dumping

November 15, 2012
MUNCY - The owner of an area trucking company, along with two of his employees, has been charged with dumping thousands of gallons of gas drilling waste water onto the company's grounds without first getting the required state permits, according to the state attorney general's office.

James K. Stolte, 55, the owner of Clark Trucking and Excavating, 657 Industrial Parkway in Muncy Creek Township; along with Andrew W. Miller, 38, the company's manager; and company dispatcher James Daniel Kinnard, 30, have been charged with three misdemeanor counts of violating the state's solid waste management act.

The charges were filed by Paul A. Zimmerer, a supervisory special agent with the Environmental Crimes Section of the state attorney general's office. Read the whole story

If its the 'companies grounds' they should be allowed to do whatever they want. Its their property.

"If its the 'companies grounds' they should be allowed to do whatever they want. Its their property."

What part of 'water flows into the ground and into underground water sources that then flow to other people's property' are you missing?

Chemicals dumped onto the ground easily get into nearby water sources.

That is why this action would be not only illegal, but potentially hazardous to the health of plants and animals, including people that live downstream (including underground streams).

I thought ALL waste water was safe to drink. Or did our leaders LIE to us?

That they were doing this for 2 years and not stopped is criminal. And they just get a summons in the mail? Give me a break... where is the justice in this. They should have been arrested, given only water from this property to drink, and corn from the field to eat while in jail. That's justice.
