Roulette Fish & Game Club Opposes Injection Well Proposed For Clara Township


 
To the members of the Roulette Fish and Game Club and concerned citizens.  

It has come to our attention that Roulette Oil and Gas, LLC, has applied for a permit which would allow them to dispose of contaminated waste water into a shallow gas well located in Clara Township, Potter County. 

The permit, if approved, would allow 21,000 gallons of contaminated waste water per day or 7,665,000 gallons per year to be injected into this well.  

Roulette Fish and Game Club, in cooperation with the PA Fish and Boat Commission, is made up of volunteers who work tirelessly to raise fish which are released into local waters each Spring. Fishing is enjoyed by both young and old alike. 

Our trout rearing pond is located ½ mile from the proposed injection site. It is fed by an artesian well which is said to be among the highest quality water in the State, according to a study done by biologists from the PA Fish and Boat Commission. 

Failure at this proposed injection site, would cause irreparable harm to our waters. Not only in Clara Township but for miles downstream, as these waters empty into the Allegany River.  

I ask for your support in opposing the permitting of this waste water disposal site. 

Please contact Marty Causer, PA. State Representative for the 67th legislative district and let him know of your opposition to Roulette Oil and Gas waste water injection in Clara Township, Potter County, PA. His Coudersport office number is 814-274-9769. His Bradford office number is 814-362-4400.

Any one who has any common sense should.

What is "contaminated" waste water? That is not a technical description, but an attempt to evoke an emotional response, rather than following the science, as we are admonished to do.
It is water produced from local oil and gas wells, being put back into a formation it came from. The DEP will assure the well is properly constructed, thereby providing a safe, reasonable means of disposing of this residual waste.

5:39 How about they pump that waste water in your backyard it's safe. Don't worry that your children will glow in the dark.

OK, Mr plum, but what do YOU think?

Sounds like 5:39 has a financial dog in this fight.🤔

What are the rules for creating an injection well that differ from a shallow well's existing construction? Wouldn't the answer depend upon the age of the existing well's initial development?

What are some of those toxic chemicals in frack waste water:

“Chemicals Used in Fracking

The EPA identified 1,084 different chemicals reported as used in fracking formulas between 2005 and 2013. Common ingredients include methanol, ethylene glycol, and propargyl alcohol. Those chemicals, along with many others used in fracking fluid, are considered hazardous to human health.Apr 19, 2019

Fracking 101 | NRDC”
Proof of those 1,084 toxins should keep the deniers busy for a while.
As for the DEP “assuring” that no violations, toxic spills, environmental & health detrimental effects, defective casings, etc, etc will occur is just ludicrous! We all see the daily fracking violations that occur with these oil & gas companies.

Imagine all of the toxic chemicals that leach off the hilltops when the DCNR sprays herbicides on hundreds of acres of state forest at a time. Killing the undergrowth of huge swaths of land. Wonder if those chemicals are harmful and potentially get into the water table. The salt that Penndot spreads on the highways all winter is mined from salt mines in New York state that were produced from the same ancient oceans that create the salt brine that comes out of the oil and gas wells. Actually the salt we eat as a condiment comes from the same salt mines and is the same salt that comes from oil and gas wells. Quit believing the liberal propaganda. This well is no more of a hazard than the 1000s of tons of ancient marine salt sitting in the Penndot highway barns.

Seneca Resources polluted our pristine spring water with a fracking spill. I can't tell you how awful it was, and the water burned my son's skin when he took a shower. They were fined, but it was a pittance for this huge conglomerate. Every lawyer we ran into said they could not take the case due to "conflict of interest". They buy every one, and although they did supply water for a year, and replace our pipes (black and tarry residue), it was a terrible time for us, and caused problems in other ways, too. Then the wells they had drilled turned out to not be profitable, any way, according to an employee. Go and protest!

5:39....The DEP? That statement would be funny,if it weren’t so sick.Read the fines every day,for the violations...Kudos to the ones paying attention and taking action.

Check out the classic gaslighting of 8:05(pun intended).

Translation, “you people are just ignorant, there are all kinds of “hazards”, so if your going to scrutinize mine, then you need to go after all of the others...or, don’t go after any, especially mine. Bottom line; let my employer keep doing whatever they want to your community, because I have bills to pay.”

The only ones benefitting from this is The gas company and a land owner. Everyone else is at risk. Indefensible.

Exactly @ 8:29. Thank You Everyone Who Stands Up Against This. How many people in this area have Cancer??? For a small area, there is a lot. Keep Our Land, Air And Water Clean.

Stop spinning this as a political issue. This isn’t about “liberals”, this is about capitalism and nothing else. This isn’t about liberals vs conservatives, or Republicans vs Democrats...this is strictly about capitalism, using the political narratives to polarize the community so that the corporations can come in and take your resources, risk your health and your environment, and then sell your resources for a huge profit. They’re fine with whatever risks the locals incur, because they will leave once your resources are extracted. And they make such huge profits from YOUR resources that they can certainly afford to pay whatever fines they incur, as a price of doing business. Unfortunately, your health and the health of your family is an intangible that they don’t have to concern themselves with. For all of you dutiful ‘company men’ standing ready to defend your corporate overlords, this is not liberal propaganda, this is simply a fact.
