Warren County firm agrees to stop discharging Marcellus Shale wastewater
September 11, 2014 2:01 PM
By Don Hopey / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
A Warren County waste treatment firm has agreed to build a state-of-the-art treatment facility to settle a federal lawsuit alleging it had illegally and repeatedly discharged Marcellus Shale gas drilling wastewater containing high concentrations of salts, heavy metals and radioactive compounds into the Allegheny River.
Under terms of the settlement agreement with Clean Water Action, a statewide environmental organization, Waste Treatment Corp. has agreed to stop discharging up to 200,000 gallons a day of shale gas drilling wastewater. Within eight months, it will build the new treatment facility that will have the ability to remove more than 99 percent of the pollutants.
The settlement, which was signed by the treatment company and Clean Water Action Wednesday, also requires the company to reduce its discharge of conventional drilling wastewater by 35 percent.
“From the start our goal has been to protect the Allegheny River and the health of people who use it,” said Myron Arnowitt, state director for Clean Water Action. “This settlement creates a long-lasting solution that will greatly improve our water quality.”
The settlement represents the first time an existing industrial treatment plant discharging gas drilling wastewater in Pennsylvania agreed to install effective treatment technology to protect local rivers, Mr. Arnowitt said.
In 2011, the state Department of Environmental Protection fined Waste Treatment $100,000 for violating its water discharge permit, which does not permit it to treat oil and gas wastewater. And in 2012, DEP water testing found levels of chloride, bromide, lithium, strontium, radium-226 and radium-228 downriver from the treatment plant that were more than 100 times higher than those found upriver from the plant.

PennDOT, State Police Participate in National Child Passenger Safety Week
Police, Safety Groups to Offer Safety Seat Checkpoints Statewide
Harrisburg – State Police and PennDOT are encouraging motorists to participate in free child passenger safety seat checkups throughout Pennsylvania as the agencies mark National Child Passenger Safety Week, Sept. 14 – 20. Additionally, Saturday, Sept. 20, has been designated as “National Seat Check Saturday.”
“I urge all parents and caregivers to not only get their seats checked, but also to explore all educational materials available to them,” PennDOT Secretary Barry J. Schoch said. “PennDOT, police departments and safety partners across the state are available year-round to ensure children are legally and correctly restrained.”
PennDOT funds resources such as training and educational materials for 145 fitting stations across Pennsylvania, at which more than 5,000 car seats were checked last year. The checkups are designed to teach drivers the proper installation and use of child safety seats.
Another PennDOT-funded resource is “Sit Back – It’s Elementary,” a new elementary school curriculum focused on reducing traffic-related injuries and deaths. Through the in-school program, trained police officers and safety partners educate children on making proper seat-belt use and positioning a habit.
“Child car seats and booster seats save lives, but only when they are installed and used properly,” said State Police Commissioner Frank Noonan. “The inspections conducted by our troopers typically find that a high percentage of these seats are not installed correctly -- in many cases, the child’s seat was not securely anchored,” Noonan said. “Anchoring the child seat properly to the vehicle is critical to its performance in a crash.”
Pennsylvania law requires that children under the age of 4 ride in a federally-approved car seat that is appropriate for the child's age, height and weight. Children between the ages of 4 and 8 must use a booster seat if they are no longer in a car seat.
The state’s seat belt law mandates that children ages 8 to 17 must use a seat belt, and violating this law is a primary offense. It is a secondary offense for drivers and front seat passengers age 18 and older to travel unbuckled.
Because of the potential dangers associated with air bag deployment, children ages 12 and under should always ride in a vehicle’s back seat.
The State Police Bureau of Patrol also offered the following tips:
• Read and follow the car seat and vehicle manufacturers’ instructions;
• Use the car’s seat belt to anchor the seat to the car unless you are using a child safety seat with the LATCH system;
• Fill out and return the registration card for your seat so you'll know if it is recalled because of a problem;
• Make sure the seat’s harness fits snugly; and
• Use a tether strap if the seat requires it.

"Pipeline Safety and Our Community"
A Free Forum - September 17, 2014 6:30 - 8:30pm
Members of the public, public officials, businesses, water and wastewater utilities are invited to attend a free public education forum titled, "Pipeline Safety and Our Community" on Wednesday, September 17, 2014, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Tokishi Training Center, 124 NYPUM Drive in Wellsboro.
The forum seeks to raise awareness about pipeline risks and increase safety through public education. Speakers will examine the issues surrounding pipeline safety, ways to prevent the risk of injury or damage to property and pipelines, and how to improve community planning near existing and future pipelines using the Pipelines and Informed Planning Alliance (PIPA) recommendations.
Pipelines are widely seen the safest way to transport natural gas. However, leaks, spills and catastrophic accidents do happen despite modern methods. Many pipelines in Pennsylvania are aging. Rural areas are seeing installation of much bigger higher-pressure natural gas pipelines than in the past as the result of the push to get Marcellus gas to markets. Between 10,000 and 25,000 miles of gathering pipeline could be built by 2030, according to an estimate by The Nature Conservancy. Despite pleas to call 811 to learn the location of underground utilities before starting any digging, a recent survey by the Common Ground Alliance found that 51 percent of American homeowners who planned to dig this year for typical "do it yourself" projects like landscaping, installing a fence or mailbox, and building a deck or patio, will put themselves and their community at risk of injury because they did not plan to call 811 before starting. (Common Ground Alliance).
Jim Weaver, Director of Planning for Tioga County said, "It is really important for the general public in our area to hear this information. While our emergency responders and first responders are getting good training, we also need to enlist help from the public to become an educated partner to keep our communities safe. Knowing how to identify a leak or potential pipeline hazard, what to do in that event, getting into the habit of calling 811 whenever digging in your yard, we appreciate having the forum because there is no dedicated venue that provides this important information at this time."
Mr. Weaver and Julie Kollar, Director of the Water Resources Education Network, a project of the League of Women Voters of PA., will moderate the session. Speakers will include Lynda Farrell, Executive Director of the Pipeline Safety Coalition, Dr. Roberta Winters, Pipeline Safety Lead with the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania, Jim Larkin, Regional Liaison with PA 811 One Call System, followed by a panel discussion with pipeline operators and Emily Krafjack, President of COGENT, which is providing training for first responders in Bradford, Sullivan, Susquehanna, and Tioga and Wyoming Counties.
Forum sponsors include the Tioga County Partnership for Community Health, the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania, The Water Resources Education Network, and the Pennsylvania One Call System, Inc.
The forum will focus on:
• How to recognize potential hazards and leaks
• Emergency response precautions that can be taken
• Ways to make better land use decisions near pipelines with PIPA Guidelines
• How using the 811 PA One Call System improves public safety
• How community members can participate in the pipeline siting regulatory process.
The public is welcome and pre-registration is requested. For more information or to register, please email Julie Kollar at email@example.com or call 267-468-0555.
The forum has been funded by a Technical Assistance Grant awarded to the League of Women Voters of Pennsylvania Citizen Education Fund by the U.S. Department of Transportation's Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA

PA ROUTE 6 EXEC DIRECTOR TESTIFIES IN FRONT OF PA HOUSE COMMITTEE
PA Route 6 Heritage Corridor is a force in economic, community and business development for the 11 counties it crosses, PA Route 6 Alliance Executive Director Terri Dennison told the Appropriations Committee of the PA House of Representatives at a public hearing on August 21 in Wyalusing.
The Appropriations Committee hearing focused on the impacts of tourism and the Pennsylvania Heritage Area program. Dennison provided examples of how planning projects funded through PA Rt 6 have assisted the PA Route 6 Heritage Communities in developing long range plans that are being implemented. She highlighted the many marketing efforts that are undertaken with the support of the nine convention and visitor bureau (CVB) partners. The combination of marketing, preservation and development efforts have resulted in increased visitation and business opportunities, citing that 17 new businesses have started in McKean County alone because of the appeal of the PA Route 6 driving destination.
“When tourism as a whole across the northern tier of Pennsylvania is considered, the 2012 Tourism Economic report (released in December 2013) reports that the impact of tourism for all 11 Route 6 counties includes $3.6 billion in visitor spending, supporting 28,000 jobs with a payroll of $717 million,” Dennison said.
The morning session started with testimony from Jean Ruhf, Executive Director of the Endless Mountains Visitor Bureau, who urged the Appropriations Committee to increase the funding to market the state to travelers. “I must also take this opportunity to bring attention to state tourism funding, or rather, the lack of it. Pennsylvania is missing the boat. We went from an all-time high in funding for fiscal year 2000/2001 of $44,285,000 down to our all-time low in this fiscal year of $2,564,000, ” Ruhf told the committee.
Jane Sheffield, President of Heritage PA, thanked the representatives for reinstating the Heritage Area line item in the state’s budget, adding that the funding is necessary for the Heritage Areas, such as PA Route 6, to continue their work in improving the local economy and supporting community and businesses.

Sharon Township update
At the regular monthly meeting on Tuesday September 9, the township during public comment heard from a coalition of concerned tax payers/aka citizens of the township on the issue of health insurance for part time employees.
The opinion of the citizen’s group was that as a small township with limited revenue the township should not provide health insurance as a benefit to part time employees.
In the regular session of the meeting a single quote for health coverage for the year for the two part time employees and their family including dental coverage was presented and a unanimous vote from all three supervisors to accept this quote and sign the contract.
The health coverage for 2014 for two part time employees is a $46,000 savings from 2013 coverage.
When the supervisors were ask if it might be brought up to a vote to require an employee contribution of 30% of the cost of the coverage, it was replied that it would have to be brought up for next year’s budget not this year.
The citizens coalition believes that if an employee will not be working a portion of the year that the .25 cents/hour contribution they are presently contributing is an inadequate and is by far much less than most of the working general public is required to contribute through their employer.
The general consensus from the supervisors is that without health coverage the two part time employees would quit as they only make $16/hr and it would be impossible to replace their skill sets.
The citizens coalition reaction is it would be a cost savings to increase the hourly rate without health coverage and let the employee go out and find their own coverage under the affordable health care act.
Also in the meeting is was requested that the each monthly meeting minutes be posted on the township building as required by law in a reasonable timely manner along with a copy of the treasures report.
The supervisors agreed it would be posted although they will be unapproved minutes until the next meeting.
Looking at the bright side, through our efforts we have managed to cut the budget of our township by close to 20% or $46,000.
Congratulations to the citizens that fought the good fight.
Shame on the township supervisors that failed due diligence with our tax dollars and continue to do so.
Your next Sharon Township meeting is Oct. 14, 2014 at 6:00 PM
It may be your road that gets $46,000 repairs next year!!!

What makes you respond as you do? What controls your thinking, your behavior? Have you ever gotten frustrated with yourself because you keep finding yourself back in the same place? Actually, there are many reasons for this. Our behavior, actions, thoughts, and feelings are often greatly influenced by the inner magnets that have been formed in us over our lifetime.
There is a saying which goes like this, ‘what we live with we learn, what we learn we practice, what we practice we become’. This is a stark reality. The Scriptures tell us that the sins of our parents can affect subsequent generations even up to ten generations. In the natural we know that when you go into a doctor’s office you are asked to give medical information on your family. Those in the medical field have come to realize that heredity has an impact on each individual’s health. Physical and spiritual magnets draw us towards particular outcomes. But can they be changed?
The question can they be changed, is no. You cannot change the inner magnets, but you can change your responses to them. In the physical sense you can change your lifestyle to help protect yourself from heredity issues. By being more aware of your ancestral history, you can do things that will tend to protect you by living a healthier life. The same is true for the spiritual.
If you are not sure what the generational sins might be start by taking a look at your family tree. A close look at your parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. will give you a picture of what you may be dealing with in your own life and the life of your children. The next thing is to confess these on behalf of your ancestors and ask God to cut off any ties and or curses associated with them. Although we are not responsible for our parent’s sins, they will still affect us. Change in your life will start when you start to take control over it instead of allowing the inner magnets to be in control. Remember Christ came to set the captives free, free from those things that control them. Think about it.
