Experts question treated gas-drilling fluid - Problems noted in Pennsylvania, USA
The consultant overseeing testing at the Ithaca Area Wastewater Treatment Plant cautioned plant operators Wednesday to think carefully before accepting gas drilling fracking fluid, saying some Pennsylvania plants that have accepted the material have created problems for downstream drinking water plants.
One plant also reportedly discovered radioactivity in the fracking waste, said Jimmie Joe Carl, an engineer with Pennfield-based MRB Group.

These findings have consequences for our local Singleton County Council. We have received information that our local waste treatment plant processed and/or may be is still processing CSG drilling waste from Caroona in the Gunnedah Basin. Is our area to become coal bed methane drilling waste disposal depot for the whole state?

Kewords: Singleton, Caroona, CSG, CSM, CBM, coal seam methane, hydraulic fracturing, fracking, gas drilling, toxic waste water, radioactivity.
