ANF Drillers Accused of Violating
Federal Safe Drinking Water Act

Two men who drilled for oil in the Allegheny National Forest have been charged with improperly injecting brine water into wells in violation of the federal Safe Drinking Water Act.

John Morgan and Michael Evans of Swamp Angel Energy each face one felony count for incidents that happened at two well sites in McKean County between April of 2007 and January of 2008.

Court records say the men did not have the permits required to inject brine into the wells.

Morgan, who lives in Sheffield, and Evans, who lives in the state of California, are expected to plead guilty Tuesday in federal court in Erie.

Violating the Safe Drinking Water Act carries a penalty of up to three years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000.

I hope that the Judge who precides over these two slatherass's hearing throws the the complete book right at'em. No messin' around, give them the maximum sentence. These two boys need to be made an example of and then there punishment highly publisized. This kind of activity needs to be nipped in the bud RIGHT NOW!

I think everyone in the gas and oil business would agree.
Swamp Angel Energy???? Sounds like a couple of "Fly By Night" wonders.
