JERSEY SHORE - Local sewage treatment authorities have their work cut out for them following the treatment and discharge of polluted wastewater into the Susquehanna River from natural gas drilling operations in the region.

What was a very "profitable" enterprise in which the borough earned well over $250,000 has come to a halt with the state Department of Environmental Protection's order to stop accepting the contaminated "frac" water for treatment, the Williamsport Sun-Gazette reported in Tuesday's edition.

Please take the time to carefully read this entire article, and digest what it's truly saying. There is a right way and a wrong way ... . Instead of spouting old rhetoric, delve deeply into the increasing number of FACTS as they become available.

I used to drive a vacuum tank truck and hauled waste water from drilling sites into local sewer sytems, we had a daily quota, after that was filled we followed a pickup truck to a remote location and dumped along side of the road, as long as it didn't empty into a continious stream of water, imagine what has happened since that time of over 20 years ago....
