With the notable exception of The Patriot News, I have yet to see any coverage of Secretary Krancer's announcement on thursday, June 2nd that no drilling wastewater is being discharged to Pennsylvania's streams.
I reported this news on my blog on June 3rd. PennFuture reported the news in its excellent weekly publication, Session Daze (see http://www.pennfuture.org/). I saw a link to The Patriot News story on the website of Keep Tap Water Safe. As of last night, google searches turned up just these reports to the public.
Has anyone seen other reporting of this milestone? Please send them here if you have.
Pretty amazing. Pennsylvania for decades discharges drilling wastewater to rivers and streams without treatment for TDS.
The NYT states Pennsylvania water is quite possibly poisoned with radionuclides and then does not bother to report each and every water test proving not so.
The AP runs numerous stories that are put on front pages around the state raising alarms of one sort or another about drilling wastewater discharges.
But when an historic milestone--good news, not sensational, not alarming--of zero drilling wastewater discharges is achieved, this Big News is covered in Facts of the Day, PennFuture, and a page 4 story in the Sunday Patriot News.
