Note Dogbone Shape of Luzerne Township


SPONSOR: Freedom From Fracking, Fayette County, PA

Announcement for Public Meeting on Dogbone Project near US Route 40 in Monongahela River Valley, May 15, 2018

With the apparent approval of the Fayette County zoning hearing board, and a local land owner, Chevron will construct five (5) one million-gallon tanks (5,000,000 gallons) to store and reuse frack water at the intersection of Rush Run Road and Haines School Road in Luzerne Township.

The intended facility will be operational for a period of 5 to 10 years, minimum. Trucks hauling frack and fresh water will run to the proposed facility on a 7 days per week, 24 hour per day basis. Frack water is said to contain radiation along with biocides and other chemicals.

The proposed tanks will not have tops on them and will be open to the air… thanks to our Fayette County zoning hearing board. Not only will the facility harbor many unsafe conditions, it will be a substantial nuisance to the folks who reside all around the area. Major truck traffic, lights at night, pumps and generators running at all hours, an increase in the amount of litter along Rush Run, and the terrible odor from frack water in open tanks. These are just a sampling of what this facility will provide our community.

Neither the township or our county government have done anything to help protect the landowners in the vicinity of the proposed facility. If anything, they are helping to support Chevron’s plans!

Please join us in the effort to keep peace and tranquility in our Agricultural Community. Assist us in battling against big business that just moves in and does whatever it wants to, and also in ghting against our corrupt government agencies that just go along with whatever is best for their pocketbooks… not what is best for the people that live in these communities and have to deal with the problems they both dump on us.

We are a local group formed with the intention of protecting the community we live in. We are local landowners that care about where we live, the air we breathe, water we drink, livestock we raise and the general wellbeing of our community. Come and join us, if nothing else to keep updated on the matter at hand.

The meeting will be held for the community at 7:00 pm on May 15th at the Humbert Barn, located at 289 Heisterberg Road, E. Millsboro (Red Barn Lane). Please come with your questions and concerns.
