If some of you loons knew what they're ALREADY shipping in barges on the river your little tin foil-wrapped heads would be exploding. LOL

All Wheeling needs is one major spill and who will pay? Maybe the company will pay a small sum and close. The money the company had will like magic not be found. So Wheeling suckers will have to pay big time for water. Like for upgrading sewer plant I bet the cost of upgrade is to accept tainted water so these well waters can be run into our sewer plant so the rich company owners don't have to treat their tainted water but YOU get the bill and the headache and they run off with the big bucks. New company motto will be let the SUCKERS who have to stay in Wheeling pay.

So what to do with the waste water??? BBC News: The National Academies report concluded that "the process of hydraulic fracturing a well as presently implemented for shale gas recovery does not pose a high risk for inducing felt seismic events".

But fracking creates wastewater that is often injected underground just as in conventional drilling, a practice that has been implicated in seismic events as well...

So--it turns out fracking is not the health problem we thought, but the disposal of waste water is the real problem...

Nobody has asked how many of these heavy trucks will be using this facility per day. Will they use the city streets the same as the gasoline tankers that went to the old facility? Has anyone noticed the roads around and in Warwood lately? I think the councilperson can't see the forest for the trees.

According to the US EPA, in a report entitled "Oil and Gas Production Wastes", the surface "disposal" or treatment of "produced water", that is, fracking flowback, "may lead to ground and surface water contamination", and, those at risk of radiation exposure include not just "waste disposal workers", but "nearby residents/office workers", as well.

some of us have seen these companies intentionally dump this stuff into the ohio river in wellsburg.right at our water treatment all are not to be don't trust us the public to know what these chemicals are so that we can't come back to sue for health issues from us and we may trust you.we aren't as dumb as you people were hoping for us to be.when the little boats are out there following your barges you'll start to whine.constant sampling will be taking thing around here that you can't buy is the already belongs to us taxpayers.if you don't want to tell us the truth then i'm sorry about your luck.truck it.

Noticed that Gloria in her zeal to appeal to the loudest people in the room, said that this company was locating here because it was "run out" of the last place. Turns out that was not true. At all. So Gloria will end not being sure which is the popular position to take and may overload. Extracting natural gas is not new to this area, WV has had gas fields and most of us got used to seeing the gas wells for decades. But now that we may be able to reduce the use of smokestack energy we have the same cast of B characters playing their over the top big feeling roles to try to stop the use of natural gas as well. It appears that contrary to the Henny Penny sky is falling report that they will just discharge the water in to the river and right into our faucets, they are going to ship it in barges to other locations. In the world of the left winger, being a protestor is about the coolest thing to do, minus reality or facts.

This is madness. At the 2012 annual meeting of the American Institute of Chemical Engineers, held just this past October in Pittsburgh, scientists from the University of Pittsburgh reported, in "Fate of Radium in Marcellus Shale Flowback Water", that Radium "is often found in Marcellus Shale flowback water at activities exceeding 10,000 pCi/L. In comparison, the EPA maximum contaminant level (MCL) for drinking water is 5pCi/L and the maximum radioactivity for disposal in RCRA-D non-hazardous landfill is 25 pCi/g". They discuss ways in which Radium can be precipitated out of the frack waste water, but, then, the precipitate, as they specify, would have to be disposed of at special sites permitted to accept highly radioactive waste. Otherwise, the Radium, which is insanely toxic and hazardous, it accumulates in your bones, would be discharged into the river, near a drinking water treatment plant.
