Massive Waste Facility Slated for “Triple Divide”
The headwaters where three rivers are born, the triple continental divide in Potter County, Pennsylvania, is slated for a massive toxic waste processing plant permitted to handle up to 700 truck loads of unconventional oil and gas “production fluids” per day. Unless…armed with information and determination, the communities through which all this waste will be transported stand up and just say, “NO.”
The web of companies involved in the placement of this new waste facility a few miles from Triple Divide is splintered and strange. Probably most odd is the following statement from the website of the first company behind the project, Sionix:
“Costly and risky transportation of these highly toxic wastes no longer need to cross the busy highways and byways of rural America threatening told and untold catastrophes.”Sionix is referring to it’s mobile, on-sight waste treatment machines in the quote above. So why are “subcompanies” of Sionix building a huge facility requiring “risky transportation” of “highly toxic wastes?” That’s one of the questions we’re about to uncover.
Stay tuned for more from Public Herald about the Triple Divide waste facility. Ground has been broken, but construction of the facility itself hasn’t started…yet.
