Another terrible idea: SB 790

Naturally the fossil fuel industry wants to find a cheap way to get rid of its drilling water — the chemically contaminated and radioactive waste water that emerges from underground during the process or drilling for gas and oil.

And the industry has come up with spreading their waste product on dirt roads. What could possibly go wrong? Read one woman’s tale of what could and did go wrong at PennEnvironment.

The PA DEP was forced to put a moratorium on the procedure but now a bill is before the General Assembly to legalize it, along with other handouts to industry at the expense of public health and taxpayers.

To sign on to a letter protesting the bill, see here.
