""Kate Marshall said she was troubled by the fact GreenHunter was even asking permission to avoid paving its parking lot. "If this company is already asking for shortcuts, I think it leaves us a concern for what's to come," Marshall said."" Boy and howdy. Hang on to your shorts. And, WWUthinking mentioned the Coast Guard. Have they approved the plans yet? We heard the CG put the brakes to a similar plant planned near Charleston.

Search for: "Fracking Truck Sets Off Radiation Alarm At Landfill", 4/24/2013, FORBES. That concerns an incident with Marcellus waste in Pennsylvania. It's a pretty well-known that frack waste and flowback can contain high levels of radium, and radium decay products extracted from the deep shale. Do the requirements for the frack fluid recycling plant in Warwood require, as many landfills do, radiation detectors in and around the plant, or along the route through the residential neighborhoods the trucks will follow to it? Why not?

Appears to me that this is already a"DONE DEAL" The residents of this area don't want it, but as usual, they say anything for jobs. I guess Warwood will go like the rest of the city. Elm Grove, Woodsdale,MT. Dechantal and the rest will continue todeteriorate.

idliketoknow - I suppose if Warwood is your idea of "paradise"...

It was 'paradise' when I grew up there. To the immediate East were the hills to play on and even walk to the West was the undeveloped grass and trees at the Ohio River for adventure. North & South was a friendly, safe town with a bank, grocery stores, movie theater, schools and beautiful Garden Park. Safe, secure, Homogamous and happy.

Today? Change the town name to 'Toilet, WV'

There is one thing that seems to be escaping everyone in this "pave-don't pave" debate. Why wouldn't an industrial operation want to spend the money to pave their parking lot and, thus, reduce their ongoing costs for maintaining that parking lot? Because they know they aren't going to be there, in operation, long enough for it to matter. You don't have nearly as much gas, and gas-related economic boost, as you have been led to believe. Their wish for an unpaved lot can be characterized by one descriptive word, just like most of the people in your area earning wages drilling the wells, and the boost from them your fast-food restaurants and motels are enjoying: transient.
