Company Wants To Discharge Frack Water In Creek

Legislation should force these companies to dispose of waste water into their own facitilies and home drinking waters. There is enough pollution in our streams. Nobody makes money from these oil companies but themselves. So they should deal with it themselves. Doing all this drilling sure is not helping peoples pockets at the pumps gas prices went up again to $2.69/Gallon, where has this drilling helped Americans yet?

I agree!

It's time to put our health and well being above these pigs' pocket books.

The headline and reporter should use the language, and make it clear that the water the company petitioned to release is TREATED wastewater. The technology exists to make this water used in fracking pure once again. Don't jump on the Gore/Green wagon just because the" Main Stream Media" tells you to.

I AGREE! If they want to discharge polluted water into a creek, make sure they discharge it into their drinking water well at their own homes. Let their families deal with polluted water. Then we will see how fast they decide that might not be the best idea. Why is that these guys are bringing in the big bucks while those of us who live here have to live with the demolition they create? Our elected officials keep talking about how great this will be to our economy. Has anyone out there noticed anything great yet? I haven't! I am just scared to death that my home will be left unliveable!

Well if it's such clean water then why don't they just reuse it? For that matter, run it through their water system (i.e. drinking fountains, toilets, sinks) and then dispose of it like everyone does...through the sewer system.

Tell me, what are they doing with the water now?

3:18 Since the wastewater is "pure", how about we discharge it into your well?

Are any of you Tree Huggers capable of processing what you hear? The water being discharged will be going through a new treatment facility developed just for this purpose!You spout your concerns about frack water,but when someone does something about it,you still babbel your propaganda.I think when we are done cleaning house on our elected officals we should mop up your sorry butts.You are killing this country with your crazy ideology!

At first the discharges will be by the book, then comes the "TAKING SHORT-CUTS and CLOSE ENUFS".

As the 3:28 poster noted, this water is treated. where do you think the water from your sewer department goes once it is treated?

The gas company's can NOT just drill anywhere.The people that own the land have leased it to the gas co. Many.many of your neighbors are making ALOT of money and have been for MANY years..

Guess the tree huggers forgot about that!

Well if Alaska can pay royalties to all its residents for the oil running through the alaskan pipeline why cant PA do the same thing from gas found on public land the hoseheads are drilling on.
As long as the water is treated it is fine and if done correctly would not produce any 3 eyed trout.

If it's treated and safe, we can all agree there is no argument.

I don't see how there need be any argument here, just neighbors pressing to ensure safeguards that it is safe now, and will be safe every time they do it.

That means someone from either local authority or EPA telling the company it's safe, not the company telling us it's safe.

I don't know their policies now, I don't know what the safety checks are but if someone would like to clue us in that would be great!

380,000 gallons a day into a small creek. And NO ONE actually even knows what's IN the water.

That's right, your federal government allows the drilling companies to classify Fracking fluids as a "trade secret" and has exempted this "product" from public disclosure.

And then they shove this unknown quantity into the ground at extremely high pressure. And when they pull it out of the ground, it's now laced with heavy metals and hydrocarbons, known carcinogens and even radio active.

And if no one really knows exactly what's in this soup mix, how the hell do you expect that this be treated?

All they can do is dilute it.

380,000 gallons of diluted, mildly radioactive, hydrocarbon laced effluent dumped into this creek every single day.

Ok, that treatment company's president needs to shower in this slop every day for the next 6 months and then report back to us before we allow 1 drop of that crap into our watershed.

Don't ever forget this....All they can do is dilute it. That's what they call "treatment".

The "nobody" that knows what is in frack water is you.The mixture is not made public,but the agencys that oversee it know the exact content.The company's were so tired of people wanting to know,that they made it public.Jim printed it.Look it up,wouldn't understand it anyway.

Anonymous said...

Jim Printed the general list of chemicals used. The mix, is still considered a "trade secret".

Would you shower in it for 6 months, after it comes back up?

Don't piss on my leg and try to tell me it's raining. That crap is toxic on the outtake, and all they do is dilute it.

Do you live here? Is that YOUR water your life depends on?

@6:40 PM, nice NON Denial denial. You attacked the messenger and chose not to address any of the points they brought up.

damn, the truth is a harsh mistress.

The terriible truth is frac mining is here whether we want it or not...we have to become our own watch dogs and make sure these companies don't rape our water/countryside/etc. and then run away and leave us the clean up/consequences.

You are making statements you can't back up.That is called fear mongering.
I guess your are a chemist and have sampled the water leaving a plant that is not even built.
Or could it be you are an engineer and have studied the design of this processing plant and have determined in all your wisdom,that it won't work.
Could be you are a wizard and have the ability to be all knowing.
Or is it the most likely answer,you are just another tree hugger with a cause,spouting B.S.
If the frack water is no longer an issue,you no longer have a cause.Find another hobby.

all this drilling is just gonna create sink holes wait until they drill on your land and one day while you are mowing you yard 3/4 of it collapses beside you or beneath you. and yes this drilling still does not help anyones pockets but their own. they buy mineral rights for next to nothing and when they drill the damage exceeds the amount the mineral rights were paid.

Sink holes????
This is starting to sound like the windmill debate.Does this nonsense come to you people in visions or or are you hitting the jug a little too hard.

to 9:03am "THEY" do NOT buy mineral rights...
