In Pennsylvania, we are near 100% recycling of the frack water. It gets cleaned and reused.
There are discussions between the industry and the PA Department of Environmental Protection to start using acid mine water as the base for hydraulic fracturing.
Tests will be conducted and the state may get its acid mine water issues tackled for free by the gas industry.
Of course, the enviro-whackos keep lying and using emotion.
That is why the industry is using terminology like “stimulation” rather than fracking.
Marcellus Natural Gas —— clean American-produced energy with a 100-year supply ——— somewhere a Sheik is crying.
And that's where these discussions belong--at the state-industry level. It's pretty simple, Federal oversight here in indv states isn't provided for in the Constitution, and EPA/Obama maneuvering to impose their will violate it. Again.
