A fracking company in Grapevine, TX wants to ship it's dirty water, brine, over 1,100 miles to New Matamoras, Ohio for, well, dumping.
"GreenHunter wants to use a tanker barge that can hold 10,000 barrels"
What could possibly go wrong? Pennsylvania has been doing it for awhile but, hell, at least they're right next door.
"State records show that 12.2 million barrels of fracking waste and brine were injected in the first half of 2012, 56 percent of which came from Pennsylvania and West Virginia."
There's no place closer to Grapevine, TX?
Glad we scuttled solar in favor of becoming a toxic waste dump.
