When an individual does this THEY NOT THE GAS COMPANY should be responsibility to pay the fines.

11:22:00 AM IF THIS IS FROM A DRILL SITE...This is not the individual's action that allowed this.
The owner of the waste is responsible. The driller may have failed to track where their waste was going.
If the drillers didn't require the waste haulers to provide receipts from the waste treatment or disposal sites to confirm that it was handled properly. The driller is at fault.

I think the drilling companies encourage their haulers to illegally dump their waste, the hauler probably gets a bonus whether he succeeds or not. Good hard cash for succeeding & a bigger wad for keeping his mouth shut if caught.

I can only say WOW! The gas industry reps have said that this could never happen as they track this stuff "from cradle to grave" every time it has been brought up and everyone just says "okay Mr. Gasman. If you say so it must be true."

When is everyone going to open their eyes and brains up to see the problems we're going to face with this industry in our area. Next time it may be some other idiot from out of the area (or within the area) that dumps this crap into an area that will directly impact our drinking water.

Ah, remember the days when it was only septic tanks that were pumped and discharged on forestry land, off a bridge, or better yet, a farmer's field? (Yes, in Potter County) The old adage says "Don't drinkdown stream of the herd." We're all downstream.

Not the Gas company? What is your standard of blame, John A. Manzoni in coveralls tipping 55 gallon drums over a bridge in the middle of the night? If you contract with a gas company, you represent that company.
Talisman is doing absolutely the right thing. They have the most to lose from this imbeciles’ actions. This is akin to eco terrorism. The offender should be water boarded to determine if he is a lone dumper or was part of a conspiracy to illegally dump.

As paperwork can be altered, forged, lost etc, I believe the only solution is to have an independent security firm; physically escort and video tape every waste truck from point of fill to point of legal discharge.

Scattering rubbish?

Gee just a couple weeks ago they were trying to tell us that this brine was ok to dump any where!!! Well which is it ? I think that all this gas stuff is all lies and that these gas and oil companies have far too much money - as this $100,000.00 is just petty cash to them. I just wish these companies would just go else where and do their drilling and leave us ALONE !!!!! AND YOU PEOPLE THAT THINK THAT THIS BRINE IS OK AND YOU NEED JOBS JUST GO FOLLOW THEM. Most of us just want to live here in peace and hazard free.

12/2 - 4:47, does that really look like brine to you? Are you just that stupid and want to complain?

Where did it say Talisman WASN'T taking responsibility? They were taking responsibility before they even knew where it came from!

Talisman is an upsatanding company that will do what ever it takes to make it right! Look how long it took northern PA to get it right and quit running raw sewage into the same creeks the kids played in and people were eating the fish out of the same creeks!

All I can say is that this is sooo..sad!!!

won't see that on any of the TV spots running all the time on cable and the networks. They should make the guy sit in a tub of it for 24 hours. The post about eco terrorism is misguided; eco terrorism is only done by environmentalists, or as the GOP candidates like to call them all; "radical environmetalists". But this a crime against nature and if convicted, the guy is certain of a job in the Corbett administration.
