This is for all the folks that think Hydro Fracking is so great. Making Pennsylvania a kill zone one well at a time.

No damage done from what the article said. What was killed?

Looks to me like a near miss. Glad they got it capped and were able to prevent major spillage into streams or soil. Something to keep an eye on, thanks for the report.

Indeed...

"At one point 800 gallons of fluid per minute were flowing out. DEP says workers were able to contain the fracking fluid in a nearby retention pond and only a little bit got on the road."

Just curious...at 800 gpm what constitutes "only a little bit"?

TomG,
thank you my thoughts exactly, I wonder if engineers thought the same thing when pcb's got into spring creek many years ago? Any spill or trouble could be avoided if there was no Fracking. This was a major rush without enough oversight by DEP inspectors statewide. how many oppsies is it gonna take till folks realize this is no freakin good! Ahhh some will say its not happening near me that's all north or west of me, but underground aquifers don't work that way. Poop goes down hill so does pollution. If it happened near a stream or area you hunted would you care then. Should have been a serious outrage by all Pennsylvanian Outdoorsman and women when this was even introduced as a moment of brilliance.


Humans need water to survive, when the water is polluted you are out of luck.

I am not advocating "no fracking" but I am advocating being careful enough to have no accidents. And, I also advocate not minimizing the accidents by saying, "well, at least it wasn't the total disaster it might have been."

Then you are, in effect, advocating no fracking with those standards. Nothing is 100% safe.

By the way, on a year to year basis, I am pretty sure the PFBC is polluting more streams than all the fracking companies combined.

How so? Please list the pollution discharge violations of the PF&BC vs Fracking company violations.

Hatcheries. As far as I know, no fracking companies have carte blanche to continually release polluted water into streams. Although, as I said, I'm not entirely sure about that.

That would be myrexand kepone, not PCB's. While there may be PBC's in Spring Creek the whole reason for the fish kill and harvest restrictions is the 2 checmicals listed above.

Insecticides...PCBs...neither belongs in the water...nitpicking just dilutes the point.
