" Governor Earl Ray Tomblin said the plant also adds to our workforce.

"This is the first phase with the opening of this processing plant. There's been hundreds of workers in the construction, there'll be at least 20 or more full time jobs here so it brings a great economic boost to the state, and in particularly, this one, to Doddridge County," he said."

How many of those hundreds of construction workers were local. How many of those "at least" 20 jobs went to people from Doddridge County? 20 jobs a "great economic boost"? Is he really that clueless?

Denny Powell was NOT forced to sell so don't put it out there that way! He was compensated above and beyond the worth of the property!

Does this make the propertys that are nearby more valueable or will all the people who live on dakota lane start having health issues because of the drilling? Will the pond on old 50 be contaminiated by the drilling of wells just questions from concerned residents.

Nothing is 100% but I am sure "they" aren't here to try to bring harm to the area. Yes, in general property value should be more valuable to other companies like these. It's just called growth people and I am pretty sure we should just except it. Maybe the roads in Doddridge County will benefit from all the money the county collects off of the new funds the county will be collecting. West Union is turning into one big hole and that's sad! Let's hope they put all the money to good use!

WOW !!! 20 more jobs because of the Sherwood plant. And for that the entire town of West Union and surrounding areas are going to get slowly poisoned with the toxic emissions spewing out of the compressor. Has anyone seen the articles that lists the volume of gas this station will be pumping each day and the list of chemical emissions as result? I have.

And there is serious concern by enviromental researchers that these compressor stations in WV have far worse impact than those on the open plains of the midwest (where the toxic air can better disapate.) Here, it will hang in the hollows between the hills and can't just blow away. It will affect all those living nearby. And the industry knows it. Collateral damage.

I was told that Antero is using a new technology on their compression stations and there won't be as much toxins released as in older stations. But still, way more than we want. And not a thing we can do about it other consider moving to a state that doesn't have this kind of natural gas deposits.

If you check out what the crap they use in the well you would be shocked , but they are to use them at certain levels ?? YEA RIGHT. They are running day and night and doing so much harm to Doddridge county at a fast pace because they are scared of being shut down so they run 24/7 and hope to beat the local laws on there way to destroy
us. I think good old earl ray has his head in the sand over this and is on board with these jerk offs
who are less then maggotts on a turd.

Sue 'em for toxic exposure. You know how lawyers are and this is a big company that knows what it is doing to us. I think they are pushing hard now becuz they know the bottom is going to fall out soon. and what will be left of Doddridge in the end?

20 jobs created from the Sherwood plant is not exactly my idea of a great economic boost. and as far as the roads some here are mentioning, consider this: If you are noticing the extra rough roads bouncing along in your car, hitting the potholes and ruts, it's all taking it's toll on your tires, your shocks, breaks, suspension, etc. whereas the roads were in much better condition predrilling. And that extra wear and tear on your cars are costing YOU money to replace tires an make repairs sooner than you otherwise would have. And those drillers ain't gonna buy you that new set of tires when you need it sooner.

maybe the replacing of tires, shocks, brakes, collision repair, property damage, lawyer fees are the economic boost tomlin is refering to

just my opinion

I'm curious where do you people haul your left over fracking wastewater shit? Does any of it go to Lochgelly WV in Fayette County? Your toxic fracking shit is loaded up with all kinds of toxic chemicals, like glycols, benzene, arsenic so disposing of it into injection wells and sediment pits that leak into your water supply is really STUPID! If you live or work anywhere near that drilling waste, you'll want to get tested for exposure to radiation, arsenic and other toxins.
Funny how people get all excited over a little bit of money and don't mind sacrificing entire communities for it.
Yup

The damn industry dumps much of in on our rural back roads under the cover of protection by DOH and DEP because "brine" is acceptable for using on road sprays. Problem is that "brine" is a broad term and just means that salt is included in the product. It has already been documented that the so-called "brine" sprayed on our Doddridge Co. roads for dust control has on occasion been discovered to be frack fluid including benzene and toluene among many other toxins. Just another day in Doddridge brought to you by the drilling industry.
