Don Gilliland has the story.
This is a major milestone. Pennsylvania now has less drilling wastewater going into its rivers and streams than prior to the first Marcellus well being drilled in 2005.
For decades Pennsylvania had a gas drilling industry and had been discharging drilling wastewater to rivers and streams without treatment for Total Dissolved Solids.
Congratulations to all involved--DEP and Secretary Krancer, environmental organizations, drinking water suppliers, and the gas industry itself.
