Ohio City Keen On GreenHunter

By CASEY JUNKINS Staff Writer

May 19, 2013

NEW MATAMORAS, Ohio — Living directly across the street from GreenHunter Water’s natural gas frack water recycling plant, Dianne Longfellow said her porch gets a little dusty from the 30 or so truck......

Why doesn't this story include the Scatterday Half-Marathon? Every other one on the page does.

WVUGEO “arrogant, ill-informed rhetoric”

That arrogant, ill-informed rhetoric coming from one living on Social Security and another who’s credentials consist of operating a convenience store, spewing half-truths to smear a real job-creating industry in economically-starving West Virginia. The irony is breathtaking.

Do your fellows some credit and find me that single fracking fluid contaminated well anywhere in the Ohio Valley. STILL waiting on that.

“A lot”? Impressive quantitative argument you have there, “GEO.” LOL

Troll: Our "bread is buttered", sadly, and sparingly, by the Social Security Administration. And, it ain't a "little" radium. It is, in some cases, a lot. And, it is so dangerous that the risk of it cannot, simply cannot, be cavalierly blown off with arrogant, ill-informed rhetoric. You do your fellows a disservice, and yourself a discredit, when you so coarsely dismiss the potentials, the facts, and the dangers.

So much common sense from thriving New Matamoras, and so much nonsense from economically-challenged Warwood. Coincidence?

WVUGEO and mkhunt, you’re quick to scream RADIATION and CANCER and death and destruction, but after THOUSANDS of wells fracked here we’re STILL waiting for you to provide a single specific example of harm here.

Yes, fracking fluid contains a little radium. How much fracking fluid will they be dumping in the river? Zero. And what’s the concentration of radium when an accidental spill somehow uncontrolled by the containment measures they’ll be taking gets into the river? Negligible. Yet you’re still here spewing misinformation smearing the gas industry, and more misinformation cheerleading the coal industry. Wonder where your bread is buttered. LOL

Here is how it works...a pyramid investment scheme consists of people at the top taking the money of investors. There are many books on Enron, Love Canal, and the disposal industries available through inter-library loan if the local library does not have the books.

wvugeo, if you don't know how a reporter made contact with a family miles away in Ohio then you simply don't know much about reporting or anything else. Perhaps you're waiting for the return of Blaw Knox to the area (heaven forbid what those machines put into the Warwood earth). Think just maybe you'd be happier living in Alaska where you could melt snow for drinking water and cut down the forest to heat your outhouse.

Ignorance is bliss.

The two ladies interviewed said they didn't know what was in the tanks, but that the tanks looked nice.

Does GreenMoneyHunter actually test the incoming water - to ensure the safety of their employees - or do they expose them to unknown risks?

Um, we noted that, at the time we write this, 3 people have disagreed with our first statement, in our first post, below, that radium isn't just "considered" to be radioactive, it is radioactive. That's sort of an indisputable fact of established physics. What, exactly, is it that you can be disagreeing with? Did you skip ALL of your high school science classes?

Sounds like the lady is just very happy that the company painted the dilapidated facility. Wheeling residents should take notice. Paint is relatively inexpensive! Visually improve your surroundings and you will feel better about everything. One thing though, it won't make the frack water any safer.

Wow, Casey, you managed to find the one lady in Ohio who really likes living next to a frack water transloading station! Now THAT is investigative journalism!

Yawn. WVUGEO come up with some new material already. You are becoming quite boorish. This paper has given plenty of time to the haters like you. Sorry it upsets you when they print an opposing view.

"radium and uranium ... will be minuscule in volume". Not necessarily so. At the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Institute of Chemical Engineering, the University of Pittsburgh reported, in the paper "Fate of Radium in Marcellus Flowback Water", that "Radium is ... often found in Marcellus Shale flowback water at activities exceeding 10,000 pCi/L (picocuries per liter - a measure of radioactivity from which physical amounts of radium can be implied - while the) EPA maximum contaminant level for drinking water is 5pCi/L". The legal radium limit for industrial effluent is 60 pCi/L. They could well be trucking stuff through your neighborhoods, and shipping stuff down the river, your source of drinking water, that contains more than 150 times the radium allowed in industrial effluent and 2,000 times the radium allowed in drinking water. There is no safe level of radium. It will displace calcium and accumulate in your bones if the exposure, no matter how s

"President of Business Development John Jack ... admits trace amounts of chemicals and salts will remain in the water. Though radium and uranium are considered radioactive, he said these elements will be minuscule in volume." Stuff like "radium" isn't just "considered" to be "radioactive", IT IS radioactive. This reporter is deliberately choosing words to manipulate your thoughts and feelings, and soften the impact of the facts. And, let's face it, the subjects for this interview/report, the kindly neighbors across the street from the plant, weren't randomly selected. How did a Wheeling reporter first make contact with a family many miles away in Ohio? Who introduced them?
