Frac Water Recycling Facility to go in Morgantown Industrial Park

by Nicole Good on May 20, 2011

A new site for recycling waste water from Marcellus Shale gas drilling will be based in Morgantown Industrial Park at the American Environmental Services (AES) facility.  Slated to begin accepting water in July, the waste water recycling  facility will be able to process 210,000 gallons of waste water per day and three tankers at a time.  The recycling process removes large solids (both organic and inorganic), metals, and hydrocarbons to low levels, “resulting in a sludge that is to be dried and disposed,” and the AES facility is fully permitted to store hazardous and non-hazardous waste.  Sweetwater Resources, Inc., based in Pittsburgh, PA, announced the plans for the site in a press release earlier this week.

The stuff removed has to go somewhere, as does the sludge – I guess they’re going to “safely” store it there?

the drilling industry is out of control and is violating the civil rights of their victims. these are people who are breaking the law in multiple ways, subverting the law and the intention of law.they know that flaring is toxic and actually outlawed in some countries. these weird companies with American patriotic names should be a real warning.they are very new companies with no track record.their appeal to patriotism is a pathetic lie..look who owns Chesapeake Energy and where the gas is china at a time when China is warning all countries not to interfere with their aggressive military build up.I just heard collaborators testify before the federal Energy team. they sounded like Miz Scarlett from Gone With the Wind…money, money and selfish gain…including the geologist who just returned from China who openly insulted my husband who is a scientist and a very good and moral man, you cannot sit on the side any more.they are there in morgantown.decide to act or forever know you could have and did not.
