Latest report here on where frack waste, frack flowback, radioactive frack rubbers, and fracking filth are being dumped in New York, because Fracksylvania is full fracking up.
Fracksylvania gets fracked, New York gets the frack filth. Such a deal.
Low grade radioactive frack filth – the gift that keeps on giving. . . cancer, birth defects, etc.
28,618 tons of unconventionally-drilled solid waste went to landfills in NYS, 94.7% of which was drill cuttings. Chemung County Landfill received 24,753 tons of these drill cuttings. By contrast, at the peak of PA fracking, NYS received nearly 214,000 tons of drill cuttings from PA. In 2016, 187 barrels of unconventional waste fluid were stored at a facility on Onondaga Lake. In addition, 1160 barrels of conventional (vertical) drilling waste were spread on roads in Allegany and Chautauqua Counties in 2016.
In stark comparison, unconventional liquid waste sent in 2016 from PA to OH for injection was far greater: 1.3 million barrels. 55,449 barrels of conventional waste was also sent to Ohio, mostly disposed of into injection wells. Ohio also landfilled 20,670 tons of PA’s solid fracking unconventional fracking waste.
