Bentonite Leaks into J-burg Reservoir

Bentonite Leaks into J-burg Reservoir

WESB NEWS
Drilling near Silver Creek in Johnsonburg has been stopped after bentonite leaked into the creek and made it's way into the city's reservoir. Johnsonburg Municipal Authority Chairman Eric Poague says there is no danger to the water system or residents because bentonite is non toxic and comes from the earth.


Poague says Hunt Marcellus Operating Company of St. Marys was boring for a pipe to run under Silver Creek when some bentonite gel was accidentally released into the creek. The company is handing the cleanup of the substance which caused cloudiness to the creek and reservoir.

really??? check ebay...all kinds of people selling it and buying for it's edible properties. supposedly a super mineral...bentonite is nothing more that 100% natural clay....often used in cat litter, used to seal water wells casings, etc......now with that said, i don't know if what they use in drilling is something other than bentonite.

If it was toxic they wouldn`t have printed this. They only hush hush the toxic mishaps.
