MarcellusGasInfo water complaint = terrorist act???

Recent Gas Drilling News - June 26, 2013 - 9:45pm

first TransCanada gets Nebraska law enforcement to go along with the idea that protesters are "terrorists"

Now an environmental official warns residents that complaining about contaminated water is equivalent to an act of terrorism.

Seriously – if I wrote this $#!+ as a fiction novel an editor would laugh my ass out of the office! "No one would believe this!" he’d cry.

Yeah- well tell that to the folks in Mount Pleasant TN.

MarcellusGasInfo what living in a gas field is really like

Recent Gas Drilling News - May 18, 2013 - 10:00am

A couple days ago one of the Williams Compressors in northeast PA had a fire (and possibly explosion). When it went quiet, residents could hear the things they’ve been missing….

http://marcelluseffect.blogspot.com/2013/05/three-nights-living-in-gasfield.html

Any elected officials, landowner group representatives, farmers who drive down and return to town boards saying "oh, you can’t even tell they drilled " – please read! It’s not about what you see/don’t see. It IS about what you: hear/don’t hear; drink/don’t drink; smell/don’t smell. AND it is about how you can be criminalized by corporations.

MarcellusGasInfo XTO Plans to Put Drill Cuttings in Hyland Landfill

Recent Gas Drilling News - May 18, 2013 - 10:00am

The Hyland Landfill in Angelica, NY is part of XTO Energy’s drill cuttings disposal plan. This is important to consider in connection with the landfill’s pending application to expand capacity, which will be discussed at tonight’s meeting at 7:00 pm at the Belfast Public Library, 75 South Main St., Belfast, NY.

MarcellusGasInfo Landfill Expansion Mtg., Belfast, Fri., May 17, 7:00 pm

Recent Gas Drilling News - May 16, 2013 - 11:50am

Tomorrow, Friday , May 17, 2013, 7:00 pm, the Concerned Citizens of Allegany County are holding a public meeting at the Belfast Public Library, 75 South Main St., Belfast, NY to discuss the application of the Hyland Landfill in Angelica NY to expand its capacity by almost 50%. The Hyland Landfill has been taking drill cuttings from PA for several years. Attorney Gary Abraham will provide background on the risks of radioactivity, and what the citizens of Allegany County can do to object to further accumulation of radioactive waste in our landfills.

Gary says, “Despite the high radioactivity measured in the Marcellus shale, Hyland maintains that it does not accept radioactive materials. Hyland’s attorney Tom West is also the attorney for Chesapeake, a major player in PA’s shale gas development. Radioactive elements dissolve and can be expected to be in the fluids captured from the landfill that are sent to waste water treatment plants in Wellsville and Bath, NY for dilution and release into local drinking water sources. The treatment plants are unable to remove radioactivity from landfill waste water. These radioactive elements lose half of their destructive powers every 1,600 years and will be a health hazard for many generations to come. Radioactivity bioaccumulates, so maximum concentrations over time will occur in fish caught in the Genesee and Cohocton rivers, to which the treated waste water is discharged.”

Notice of the expansion application is posted on the DEC website at http://www.dec.ny.gov/enb/20130508_reg9.html#902320000300002.
