So pull your shithole in after you, bum. Your garbage can never compete with foreign steel anyhow.

Awww there that shithole bum from South Park. Why doesn't he just pull his shithole in after him and become a "good" shithole bum? Surely even a shithole bum can can see that the only value of his worthless existence lies in its termination.

Since this particular shithole bum is so pre-occupied with drugs, this suggests a very easy method -- ie, overdose -- by which this termination might be achieved. Remember every one of these shithole bums in Hell is one less shithole bum to cause problems here on earth. So pull your shithole in after you, bum and help make "South Park" into "some place nice". After all, it is the simple fact of your existence that makes it a shithole.

Hey Not a Teacher, I know nothing of Donnan. You want to say he is full of shit you go right ahead.
I do know the gent from the DEP spins the issue. So does the guy from Range Resources.
DEP says that all drillers are required to treat all wastewater FOR ACIDS. Hell I have done that at mines with plain old lime. He does not say that the watertreatment systems are not yet capable of treating the water and removing the chemicals (toxins) and minerals (heavy metals).
The guy from Range Resources says they cannot dispose of any "UNTREATED" oil or gas water into streams. What treatment? I know of no local plant that can remove the heavy metals or these toxins at present. DO YOU?
What they permit is that any municipal authority can dump this shit into the river based on a percentage of the volume they handle. They qualify this dumping based on parts per million.
The more volume a sewage plant has the more wastewater they are permitted to push through thereby not exceeding the DEP allowed ppm.
This shit will eventually concentrate somewhere and those there will have significant health issues. Here, who knows how much time it will take but eventually we will also start seeing problems
Hmmmm. Could this be what's really going on with the Clairton Municipal Authority? Expand at the citizens expense. Make bunches of $$$ dumping wastewater from one of these drillers some day down the line? Just a thought. Pieces of the puzzle are starting to come together.
