Public Invited To Highland Township Meeting On Injection Wells

Public Invited To Highland Township Meeting On Injection Wells

Wed. February 12,2014 there will be a Highland Township meeting at 7pm,located in James City, Pa. Township building. 

One of the Main topics will be Seneca Resources Permit for injection wells and Highland Township "Bill of Right Ordinance. This ordinance establishes a Bill of Rights which recognizes and secures the civil and political rights of Highland Township residents. Seneca Resources did get their permit for a Class11-D injection well#382886 in Elk County,Pa for the purpose of disposing of produced fluids associated with oil and gas productions. 

Due to the close proximity of the well to our public drinking water supply, or any drinking supply, we the people of Elk co. and others feel there's a real possibility that our water source could be contaminated and health and safety of our community will be at risk! 

Where as, Highland Township's "Bill of Rights Ordinance No1-9 of 2013 bans the depositing of waste from the extraction of shale gas within Highland Township because that extraction violates the civil rights of Highland residents, and because it threatens the health, safety and welfare of residents and neighborhoods of Highland. 

You are welcome to come to the meeting with respect, question, and comments . 

Thank-You

Corbett and many other Republicans have forgotten what a conservative is. They are pushing this extreme leftist/liberal policy of have the state dictate to the townships when it comes to local ordinances/laws dealing with the big energy titans. Maybe it is a coincidence that the people who are pushing this left-wing, radical, liberal, socialist agenda (Corbett, Scarnati, etc.) have received the highest "donations" from the energy industry. Even our friend, the gentlemanly Martin Causer, has gone over to the left wing liberal side on this and wants to jam the state power down the people's throat. Even the Pa. Supreme Court said it is wrong but these so-called conservatives are forsaking their philosophies and trying to steamroll our townships. It is wrong. It's not what this country and this state were founded on. And it must be stopped. This is a democracy and a commonwealth, not a dictatorshp, Mr. Corbett (and Mr. Shell, Seneca, Range, Chesapeake, PGE, EQT, Penn Virginia, etc.). We have rights.

Fight Elk County FIGHT! While living in Tioga County, Our neighbors leased their land to a fracking company. Not only their water,air & soil were ruined/severely polluted but all of the neighbor's land & water, also. Our water burned brightly while running from the tap with a lighter lit, underneath. My child developed a kidney disease & 3(out of 5)of us, developed asthma & constant nosebleeds. One was diagnosed with lupus. Well, the neighbor became rich and moved away to New York State where there's a fracking moratorium. We finally sold our toxic & nearly worthless land/house at a GREAT LOSS & fled for our lives. This area's already a huge cancer-cluster. Corbett's family's living high on the hog with all of the gifts and money bestowed upon him & his family while the masses of Pa. citizens & wildlife are suffering in his filth & corruption.

I am not buying all this chatter about Corbett, Scarnati, Causer and crew being bought off. But I do agree that they are hypocrites if they call themselves conservatives when they are so strongly behind the extreme liberalism of eliminating the rights of local governments and allowing Big Harrisburg Brother to control my township. I have relatives who have fought and one who gave up his life for our rights as Americans and this idea of the state trying to take away my township's rights and tell us we have to give up our control of the township is like a kick in the teeth to these men who I love and admire and appreciate. I agree with these guys on so many issues but they have really screwed us on this one if we let them get away with it.

How exactly do you think the waste fluid is going to get into the well? They are going to haul it in TRUCKS. DUH! About 60,000 gallons a day. How many tank loads do you think that will be???
