This would not be allowed in Iraq or Afghanistan but it is OK to do to U.S. citizens. What is next napalm to clear pad sites.

"This", is not allowed any where in the United States where rich people live.

Get it through your heads folks! The one percent(ers)who run these energy companies COULD NOT CARE LESS about our health and well being. Their only worry is getting their hands on that next million $$...

Don't you guys realize that spraying of Rights of way is NOTHING NEW --- Utility Companies have done it for years ---- State Road has their own trucks to weed the roadsides ---(You drive by these trucks on a regular basis.....)

Think about the exposures -- Our kids are exposed @ school on a regular basis --- they notify the parents every year about them exterminating ----

Oh, an by the way -- they are no longer allowed to use the stuff they used in Agent Orange (like they did in the 80's)-- the state has stopped them --

NOTHING NEW --- You simply OPT OUT if you don't want them spraying around your home ----

So they take out one danger in the spray and replace it with a new name brand that we will find out years later thats just as bad ??
ARE most of you really that easy to trick ?? its all done with words and magic tricks , but it will still kill us and cause us breathing problem if we live long enough after they are donw with us.

Plaguey,

You asked "how do we do it?" ....meaning to opt out of the spraying. You CAN'T and "Chuckles" is very WRONG.

Read the article...the best it offers is being notified as to when they drop the chemicals on you and you have the responsibility of being the proactive one to write or call the WV Dept. of Agriculture to request to be notified when they take off in their plane to dump chemicals over you.

So, if those chemicals drift over onto your property beyond their right-of-way.... and it kills your own trees and bushes.... sue their ass.

I think Plaguey hit the nail on the head. Wouldn't happen in a rich area. Just look at how the Kennedy clan in Martha's Vineyard managed to keep the wind turbines out of their backyard. haha

The drillers and our state gvt. figure dumb hicks won't have the brains to figure out the things they do to us for the almight buck in THEIR pockets not ours.

Areial spraying is not the same as the spraying along the sides of roads. It is done from helicopters and has far greater potential for harm.
There is much less control of overspray from winds etc...

I did. I just tipped the ball up out of the sand. I was leaving it up to you to knock it back over the net.:-)

This whole drilling thing is about to get really really really ugly isn't it? I mean. more so than any of us have thus far dreamed.

Back in 1912 we had the WV Mine Wars. Is this the start of the 2012 oil field wars?

Yes it does tell you ---- To report a sensitive area (your pipeline b/c you are allergic to the contients of the spray -- you have a NATURAL WATER SOURCE CLOSE BY -- YOUR GARDEN IS CLOSE BY) call --- 1-877-237-0797 --

BUT REMEMBER -- IF EQT does NOT have a gas line runing through your property or you don't live closely to the gas line ---- YOU ARE SAFE

I also believe that an aanouncement (legal ad) will have to be posted in the local newspapers with all appropriate numbers ----

BTW --- I am NOT saying that I like this -- I opted out of spraying the rights of way a long time ago ----- But I do get a CHUCKLE when NOW everybody is up at arms --- Where were you when the power company sprays every year????(But I forgot -- the Powewr company doesn't have the initials EQT -- Nor does the STSTE ROAD that blasts people as they are driving by!)

The power company and state road havent spent the past few years distroying my propery.

The power company and state road weren't the ones who, just this past Friday ran me off the road (for the second time) and into a ditch just after leaving my driveway.(White truck, Oil Co logo, was A little hard to read while trying to avoid trees)

The power company and state road aren't the ones who are refusing to buy me out, so I can get out of their way before they poision everything around me.

No, it's the evil incarnate that is the Oil and Gas industry that did all of these things, and, are now telling me that they will do absolutly anything they want to my property. Also , they say, I should be thankful to them for doing it.(Reason: jobs, mom, apple pie and such)

No matter how you spell it, EQT or Satan. To me they are one and the same.

Trust issues with O&G? Just a few....

Still clueless, CHUCKLES. It only tells you who to call to tell them you have sensitivity to the spray and want to be notified when they come and do it. IT DOES NOT tell you that you can "opt out." Reread the damn press release again! The only thing it gives you is the right to call them and ask to be notified when they do it. So you can call and tell them you have respiratory problems, or your garden is next to the pipeline, or water well, etc. but not expect them to care beyond telling you when they come. They're gonna do it anyway.

And spraying overhead where the wind blows is a lot different than the previous methods of trucks from power line companies using a more controlled spray on the ground.

Yup. And the companies 100 years later are even bigger and meaner and still don't give a crap about the people and communities they devastate. The only real difference now days is that, unlike 100 yrs ago, we have better communication resources (internet, telephone, TV, etc.) so that people can more easily watch them do it.
