Preparations Made To Frack First Horizontal Well


Equipment Being Set To Pump 3 Million Gallons
Of Water From The Allegheny River To Frack
Area's First Horizontal Natural Gas Well

Pictures & Captions by James Jones

Workmen use an excavator Tuesday to unload a giant
tank and pump in preparation to pumping water from
the Allegheny River 6 miles to the well site located on
top of the mountain off Weimer Hollow.

This large pump at right of pickup truck is one of the
pumps that will push the water up to the top of the
mountain.
Workers from PGE report that the six mile pipeline will
be used to pump the waste water and fracking fluids back
to a location where tank trucks can take truck it to an
approved treatment site. The line eliminates the need to
have tankers try to negotiate the narrow and steep dirt
road to the well site.
This giant tank is being unloaded Tuesday along Route 6
in Roulette Township, just west of the Village of Roulette.

3 million gallons of water from a stream that is already suffering from lack of rain. This can't be a good thing for anybody other than the leased landowner and the gas company.

Let's do some math people...

PGE only has to pump 139 gallons per minute out of the river to get the 3 million gallons they need to frack the well in 15 days. Hardly enough to do any damage to the river. A good comparison is the one spring that feeds the Roulette Fish and Game Clubs trout ponds- (pictures below) often flow over 200 gallons per minute...

Why not pump the water out of the old stone cory. It is full of water. The river is not,leave some for the fish.
