Susquehanna Gets A Little Toxic Courtesy of Fracking
Posted 20 April 2011 - 11:24 AM
Bradford County's director of public safety said a Chesapeake well went out of control early Wednesday morning. That means the well blew near the surface, spilling thousands and thousands of gallons of frack fluid over containment walls, through fields, personal property and farms, even where cattle continue to graze.
DEP is taking ground water and stream samples to determine the extent of the spill.
Officials said fluids from the well have, in fact, contaminated Towanda Creek which feeds into the Susquehanna River.

I have my own probs with the drilling happening 50+ miles north, and thats the proposed frack waste water treatment plant thats proposed less than a mile from my house, right on Harveys Creek which dumps into the Susky. Take roads that already aren't in that great of shape and add 500+ tractor trailers of frack water a day to them, most of which I'm sure will end up dumped right into the creek > > > > >

Good thing we got a great Rublican Governor Dick Chen....I mean Tom Corbett who is fighting for Pennsylvania land and people's best interest - by slashing the PA EPA budget and making sure his biggest campaign contributors can operate tax free in our good ole commonwealth.
My sentiments exactly.
