troll,nobody wants any business to shutdown.not even the noodie bars.all these companies need to do is use common sense.keep the well sites away from the schools and no fracking fluid in the river.our first impression of the gas companies here were the trucks dumping in the river.they obviously didn't care about the people to dump where they did especially with a school in plain view.and don't worry,i get run over on here with the disagrees on occasion.part of the fun.

Wow, mikeyd. SIX disagrees in eight hours. That’s a serious “run over.” Almost as many disagrees as the massive turnout of anti-frackers attending that Wheeling Planning Commission meeting on Monday. Get three more disagreers and you could field a baseball team. By the way, how did that meeting go for you? Glad to know a few Government officials still have some common sense.

Again, shutting down one company just because another company violated the law is arbitrary and unfair and un-American. Do you want the Government to come in and shut your company down because other companies have violated the law? Is that America now? Not yet, but the progressives are working hard to make it that way.

troll,what's going on here?the disagrees' are running you over.seriously,this place has been polluted many times over by various companies and we have learned from the past.that's what makes it tough for us to trust these big companies.they have nothing in this other than to make money.no ties to the area.and these gas companies seem to have a high level of accidents compared to most companies around here.

OR You may want to try EPA:

Where do I report a possible violation of environmental laws or regulations?

Fill out the form at epa.gov/tips. If you don't have Internet access, call the EPA office in your area of the country (see the phone numbers on the right).

Many issues are handled at the local level. You may first want to try contacting your local government office for concerns about trash, litter, strange odors, recycling pickup, and household chemical disposal, including paints, pesticides, oil, antifreeze, etc. You can find information about your local government in the blue pages of your telephone book or by contacting your public library.

For concerns that may not be handled at the local level, the next step is to contact your state environmental agency. Information about state agencies can be found in the blue pages of your telephone book as well.

Melvin, WVUGEO: Complaint Filing Options

You have these options to file your safety and health complaint:

Online - Go to the Online Complaint Form Written complaints that are signed by workers or their representative and submitted to an OSHA Area or Regional office are more likely to result in onsite OSHA inspections. Complaints received on line from workers in OSHA-approved state plan states will be forwarded to the appropriate state plan for response. Download and Fax/Mail - Download the OSHA complaint form* [En Espanol*] (or request a copy from your local OSHA Regional or Area Office), complete it and then fax or mail it back to your local OSHA Regional or Area Office. Written complaints that are signed by a worker or representative and submitted to the closest OSHA Area Office are more likely to result in onsite OSHA inspections. Please include your name, address and telephone number so we can contact you to follow up. This information is confidential.

Melvin, you wouldn't understand “sound science” if it danced on the hood of your pick-em-up truck.

“Lead, asbestos, radium” are ALSO irrelevant to this discussion. So you’re one of those anti-gas loons who got nothin’, too, eh? yawn...

GEO couldn’t do it, so maybe you’ll explain how small a picocurie is. Demonstrate that vast scientific knowledge of yours, Einstein.

WVUGEO - give up on TROLLSLAYER.

It appears he would not let logic and sound science get in the way of probably having a money interest in this or shale projects.

Lead, asbestos, radium - probably figures if he can't see it then it can't hurt him.

The sad truth is the local ignorance to let the workers be exposed to that much radiation, as every well over time is unpredictable to what it will emit.

As Ronnie Reagan said, "There you go again." Comparing the radium concentration of Marcellus flowback water and drinking water is simply dishonest. Its disinformation. NOBODY will be drinking that water. It will be recycled back a mile down, or disposed of even deeper. Any spills will be so diluted by rainwater and the mighty Ohio River flow that the concentration will actually be FAR below that drinking water standard you cited.

Are you really so desperate that you would dishonestly spread such disinformation? And can you really find NO relevant evidence at all? Truly pathetic.

But, Troll, in general answer to your request: A picoCurie ain't much. But, it don't take much radium gettin' intp your bones to wreak tragedy on your grandchildren. Your chromosomes that itty bit of Radium goes after are kind of eentsy themselves. Remember: The Federal limit on Radium in drinking water is 5 picoCuries per liter. The legal limit on Radium in industrial discharge is 60 picoCuries per liter. Radium in Marcellus flowback has been reported from multiple, independent, impeccable sources at well over 10,000, nearly 20,000, picoCuries per liter. And, it will bio-accumulate by displacing calcium in your bones. It is dangerous, dangerous stuff that you are treating so casually.

Here’s your opportunity to spread some actual information, GEO. Tell your fellow anti-gas loons how much a picocurie is. Most of them haven't seen so many zeros in one place since the Democrit National Convention.

WVUGEO:" Most of the cats here, blinded by the shale gas abundance baloney sandwiches, want what they want, and the devil take all else. Some, obviously, are entranced by their own egos, and, in addition to wanting what they want, they know what they know. "

That is a possibility, WVUGEO. Or, maybe some of us recognize disinformation when we see it.

"President Obama did while a US Senator from Illinois, it might interest you to learn that he also served as a cosponsor of Senate Bill S155 in the 110th Congress, the "Coal-to-Liquid Fuel Promotion Act of 2007"."

Thanks for the example of a "Before It Before He Was Against It"

“Bananas are radioactive enough to regularly cause false alarms on radiation sensors used to detect possible illegal smuggling of nuclear material at US ports.”

So maybe it wasn’t drill cuttings setting off those radiation detectors. Maybe the driver had a banana for lunch.

And, WVEXPAT, since you brought up what President Obama did while a US Senator from Illinois, it might interest you to learn that he also served as a cosponsor of Senate Bill S155 in the 110th Congress, the "Coal-to-Liquid Fuel Promotion Act of 2007". We could have been converting our abundant Coal into Gasoline and Diesel by now, just like they've been doing in South Africa for the past half a century, just like they're starting to do now in China in a big way.

I suppose I could simply ignore all the disinformation and irrelevant fearmongering in the anti-gas loons' propaganda. But what fun would that be?
