This is the issue that we all did not want to happen. As it was reported that thousands of gallons of fracking fluid flowed out of the well and an determined amount has flowed into Towanda Creek.

There is a discussion forum tonight on MS related issues. A rep from the DEP is supposed to attend this. You can be sure this little accident will come up. Location is Albright College in Reading Pa. Klein Lecture Hall 7pm. See other post. Unless of course you are to busy worrying about someone spot burning your favorite stream. Like that will really matter after the gas industry is done around here!

As much as I hate to say it, we'll be hearing this more and more in the not so distant future. Very sad!

I fear you are right. I took an enviromental resource management course years ago, and the only thing I remember about the class is what the prof said on the first day... "Economic prosperity always trumps ecological protection."

An equipment failure allowed flowback fluids to wash onto the well pad in volumes that overwhelmed the multiple containment precautions in place.

The theory right now is it's a cracked well casing.


This is the crap I'm talking about. These companies buy this cheap @$$ stuff. This is fully, 100% preventable. Fine the crap out of them!

I agree, this will not be the last time we hear of something like this occuring. Sad thing is this is one we heard about, what about all the others we haven't heard about?

I've been past that guys farm more times than I can remember. Used to have to pass it to get into the SGL. Such beautiful country being used and abused!

The landowner leased his property of his own free will. I don't feel sorry for him. He can take the money he got from the gas company and buy his water now! I do feel for the folks who live downstream however. This gas industry is BAD NEWS!
