The gasholes need to quit dumping the frack water on the back roads and the farmers fields. What the hell do they care ,they figure they won't be here long. Take pictures and keep a camera handy and catch them in the act.

I would love to see the pictures of dumping of frac water on back roads and in fields. You are talking stupid. This is not happening. Water being dumped on dirt roads are being done by your own Town and is coming right out of ponds and rivers. I would bet everything I own that if youe water well is bad it has been bad for a long time. Long before gas well drilling started. You are just looking to cash in were you have been left out.

Most wells in my area of bradford county are and have been loaded with sulfer water and animal traces.I have been living in Bradford since 1973 and let me tell you all who are reading this e-mail stop trying to rip off the gas companys . And stop all the talking about how rotten things are for all of us upstate.It is all lies you don't live here,we do it has helped everyone .Yes it is bull that they are dumping water on our fields and roads. Eat the dust and drink the water from our roads and wells OH please all my family and friends we know have been drinking bottle water for years because of the water being not fit to drink .How would you like taking a bath and come out smalling like rotten eggs from sulfer water.

I'm from Kansas, I grew up in Towanda, We had our big Oil and Gas boom throughout our county a few years back, everyone was on a high about what they would bring us, The royalties the owners got on there production was great that first year, now they get hardly nothing, and they have to pay taxes on that money. Alot have regrets. I'm just glad to see them move on. Good Luck to you northerners.

So sad to see our county destroyed.The drilling has got to come to end.Lives are destroyed along with our wild life. The gas companies have NO COMPASSION what so ever for any kind of life. Yes the wells are poisoned and Tom Corrupt is making money on the deal.He lives in a mansion paid for with tax payers monies.Tom was paid close to a million dollars to sell Pa. residents out. Should make him sleep good at night.I heard that a driver for the gas company has a 5 year life span after working with the chemicals. Don't know how true it is ... Guess we will wait and see on that one

The gas boom has provided much needed resources for the northeast counties, truth be said, many of you would have ended up on the welfare lines when the recession hit, for better or worse we lucked out, while many of the gas wells are going on properties owned by large landowners (keeping the rich- rich)there is also a trickle down effect that provides work related employment and more bussiness for the local economy, any large workforce with subcontractors brings the human element of crime, pollution and stress on the local economies, that is a small price to pay for financial stability and bread on the table.

What a gasser you are, the effects of the chemicals must have already gone to your brain, I heard that the employees that work around the chemicals have a 5 year life span,is that true? Imagine taking that crap home to your families and watching them suffer when they start to get ill.
