Families blast gas exploration

Williamsport Sun-Gazette

TOWANDA - Just a few days after a Chesapeake natural gas drilling site flowback fluid spill contaminated pasture land and spilled into Towanda Creek here, Attorney Todd O'Malley led a group of about four dozen protesters, many of them who have had their water spoiled - they say by natural gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale - in a protest across the street from Chesapeake's headquarters here Friday.

I personally do not see the funny side of this...this woman has had her life destroyed and jokes are being made . I hope that this woman will sue the sh-- out of who ever is to blame for ruining her life this way. Whom ever else has had the same problem with their water should do the same. These companies should be held responsible for what they have done to our people. No one should have to go through what this woman is suffering. I hope she finds a way to get better and live a long life. May God bless her and keep her in His loving arms. I am praying for all the families who have been hurt by this.

But hey! We got hotel, bar and restaurant business right? Good trade off.

23. DEP wins payments to the impacted families of twice the property value, and they average $200,000. Families keep their properties and mineral rights. No state has won payments of this size to compensate families for gas migration to their property. Give this a shot... They were bragging about this on a different post
