Reduce The Risks! Require Operators to Recycle Frack Waste Water on-site!

This petition had 60 supporters

Please sign this petition and tell Pennsylvania officials you will no longer tolerate the elevated risks posed on the environment, roads and infrastructure during the unnecessary transportation of contaminated fluids. Pennsylvania should require unconventional gas well operators to recycle their waste water at the location where it is produced. This seem like such common sense reform!
Pennsylvania’s streams have suffered numerous impairments when produced fluid from unconventional shale gas wells spilled during transportation. It‘s not necessary for the Commonwealth to even tolerate these heightened risks when the technology is available to recycle (most) fluids at the well sites where the pollutants originate.
Maintaining and protecting the health of Pennsylvania’s water resources is vital to the economy. Officials need to recognize these risks and implement comprehensive regulations which would provide greater protection.

Requiring operators to recycle their fluids on-site would reduce the threat on Pennsylvania’s water resources and also reduce the damage to roads and infrastructure which is exasperated by waste hauling vehicles in the vicinity of centralized facilities.
Pennsylvania officials have been too willing to compromise water resources for profits.
This is a common sense measure. The Commonwealth’s water resources should not be sacrificed when there are alternative recycling methods.
