Youngstown company accused of dumping fracking waste faces federal charges

Feb 14, 2013 | Posted by: Mr_Bill | Full story: www.cleveland.com

The fracking waste, known as brine, is a mixture of salt water tainted with naturally-occurring toxic metals and radium and other industrial fluids

Federal charges are expected to be filed today against an oil and natural gas drilling company accused of dumping more than 20,000 gallons of fracking waste into a tributary of the Mahoning River on Jan. 31, according to a news release from U.S. Attorney Steven Dettelbach.

Dettelbach has scheduled a news conference for 1 p.m. to announce the charges against D&L Energy, a Youngstown-based company engaged in fracking operations primarily in the Appalachian Basin of Ohio and Pennsylvania, according to its website.

Unfortunately no one will go to prison. Our pollution laws need teeth including the death penalty!

This should merit a firing squad. Our drinking water cannot be replaced. Once it is poisoned, it is forever poisoned. Stop ALL Fracking! Get off oil and gas. Build smarter homes and buildings and produce wind, solar, and hemp.
