A little late to close the barn door AFTER THE COW is gone...it will be a bit late to Save New York's Safe Pure Drinking Water has been forever TAINTED with deadly chemicals...now we all watch the Natural Gas Industry commercials here in New York (Sullivan County)...listen to HOW SAFE FRACKING IS, how they will NOT HARM OUR WATER. Well. the Marcellus Shale Drilling Industry has admitted responsibility for CONTAMINATING PITTSBURGH's CLEAN DRINKING WATER...well, admitting partial fault, which for them is HUGE.
Do you really want to believe the (un)Natural Gas Industry's FALSE ASSURANCES, or do we here in New York want to say Thanks, but not thanks to FRACKING in the Marcellus Shale...the answer should be obvious to all those that have not had a frontal lobotomy.
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Officials with the Marcellus Shale drilling industry made a shocking admission Tuesday morning.
The president of the Marcellus Shale Coalition, which represents natural gas companies, said the group now believes the natural gas exploration industry is partly responsible for rising levels of contaminants found in area drinking water.
The group came to the conclusion after reviewing research from Carnegie Mellon University and the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority.
One of the major factors that led to the conclusion was the discovery of bromide in the water. It’s a salt that is also found in drilling wastewater.
Now, the DEP is calling on Marcellus Shale drillers to stop taking wastewater to 15 treatment plants in the state.Watch The KDKA-TV News At 5 p.m. For Andy Sheehan’s Full Report
