Come join us Wednesday evening and make some noise about fracking waste. Learn about what is happening even here and now in Cayuga County with the poisons produced by hundreds of existing vertical wells. Imagine the effects of this waste magnified a millionfold with high volume drilling.
The Government Office of Accountability paper on Produced Water makes no distinction between conventional and unconventional waste. The sole distinction is volume.
Learn about our three active injection disposal wells in NYS – one just 8 miles from Auburn, 3/4 mile from the shore of Cayuga Lake and Montezuma Wildlife Refuge. Mary Menapace will share what she has learned from EPA documents on particulars of these wells.
Terry Cuddy will share what is going on with Auburn City Council’s recent ban then rescission of the ban on discharging untreated vertical well frackwaste into the outlet of Owasco Lake that ultimately flows to Lake Ontario. Written info will be available.
