THANKS SO MUCH to everyone who has signed this petition! We will be presenting the signatures to the Wheeling City Council, which will be voting this week on the proposal.
Two weeks ago, a CONSOL energy barge broke free of its moorings, and struck the Star City bridge, closing it to traffic for 4 hours. This is why barging frack wastewater is of such concern to us. Strangely, this accident was not even reported in our local newspaper.
Last week, we heard that GreenHunter was "teetering on insolvency" and close to bankruptcy, and yet, we want to push ahead with allowing this company to start up another facility with "state of the art" technology?
If you are able, PLEASE join us at the two upcoming City Council meetings: September 3 at 12noon, and September 17 at 5PM.
Also, join us for the GREAT OHIO RIVER RELAY, the largest anti-fracking grassroots action to date. www.greatohioriverrelay.com
