"Though radium, uranium and radon are considered radioactive, Jack said these elements will be minuscule in volume. He also said the company's workers will wear radiation detectors while on the job." Radium is NOT "considered radioactive". It IS radioactive. Further, in a recent report of a study funded by the US Department of Energy, University of Pittsburgh scientists stated, in "Fate of Radium in Marcellus Shale Flowback Water", that Radium-226 can be found in Marcellus flowback in amounts of thousands, again, thousands, of "pico-Curies per Liter", while the EPA limit on Radium in drinking water is only 5, again, 5, pico-Curies per Liter. How is the radium going to be removed from the flowback, if they plan to remove it, before any of it gets into the river or onto the ground in Warwood, just north of the Wheeling water intake? And, once removed, how, and where, is it going to be disposed of?
