HIGHLAND TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Residents of an Elk County township are fighting a proposed, and EPA approved, Marcellus Shale waste injection well.

Residents packed the Highland Township supervisor meeting Wednesday night to express their outrage that the well could be coming to their neighborhood. They said it will be put within a mile of the James City area drinking water supply.

It was earlier this month that the federal EPA approved the drilling permit to Seneca Resources to inject waste from natural drilling operations deep into the ground. Residents said they fear the waste will leak into ground water and eventually making its way into their drinking water. Read more...

Glad they told the truth when they told us that the waste water was perfectly safe.

The surrounding water auquifers will be contaminated. Fracking is turning our state into a wasteland.

I for one am all for drilling. Then sensibly disposing of the radioactive waste produced. Just as long its not in my backyard or neighborhood!

There was interviews done in NC where a proposed nucelar power plant was proposed. They hasked half the people if they wanted it and %90 said no! Then they asked the other half that if they got power from this plant for free would they object to it? 90& said no.

#3. You're "ALL FOR DRILLING" but don't want the toxic, radioactive waste dumped near you? WHO do you want this toxic waste dumped on? What a selfish and arrogant statement.

You are missing the point. Don't you remember back in the late 00's when our government and the gas drillers told us that the waste water would be perfectly safe and able to be consumed without and treatment?

How soon we forget.
