- 1322 days ago -
Ohioans are shocked to stumble on a new proposal by GreenHunter, a Texas-based fracking wastewater company, to build a barge off-loading facility on the Ohio River in Meigs County. Barging of liquid frack waste has not been approved by the U.S. Coast Guar

When the planet becomes a complete waste zone, uninhabitable, they will stop.

Noted & posted. There go the Great Lakes as if all the microscopic plastics along with the rest of the pollutants and other crap aren't bad enough. One spill would dump enough chemicals into the environment with irreparable damage.

Brass balls the size of church bells, they have. And they will probably get their permit - certainly, if it is up to Kasich. A license to kill.

I predict it will be built. It seems most thing big companies want they get.

No permit should be issued to slowed fracking waste near clean water supplies. I know what should be done with the Fracking Wastewater; MAKE DELICIOUS COCKTAILS AND SERVE THEM TO THE FRACKING EXECUTIVES ANDD THEIR FRIENDS.

Thank You for the article - I love Betty's reply - The executives of fracking companies do not think the chemical water is dangerous -so let us give it to them for their lunch rooms in the headquarters, --- SEND IT AND ALL OF THE BARGES BACK TO WHERE THEY CAME FROM--- do not polute these waters.

And the beat goes on.....In the beginning......where did the frackers think they were going to deposit all this water,,,,,better yet, where did the pubiic think all the water would go. ..
The,people who were being paid..... were happy.... People who really knew where the water was going, took the money and never looked back.....Water, water everywhere and not a drop to drinK......

Noted and read with shock. I am guilty of not even thinking where these chemical laced waste waters were going to go. Is there really that much of a shortage of natural gas, that this fracking keeps on going, and it seems it is taking place in a lot of countries. Man is ruining the soils, polluting the streams, rivers, oceans and destroying forests at a frightening pace.
Thanks for posting Cal.

I am not surprised by this information. Frackers will do anything to pass laws to favor their agendas including hiding legislation from the public.
