TV has been having emergency preparedness commercials and billboards that haven't been
heard in years. What are they up to. Makes me want to gather my family around me
because in the end if all these disasters happen, families will be forever separated. No cell
phones, think about it.....

Good to READ, thanks Marcellus info.

DEP Fines Talisman Energy for Diesel Spill at Marcellus Well

Today the PA Department of Environmental Protection announced that it has fined Talisman Energy (formerly known as Fortuna in these parts)  $24,608 for a large diesel fuel spill that occurred in March 2010 in Bradford County. The spill happened at the Putnam 77 Marcellus natural gas well pad in Armenia Township.

According to DEP North-central Regional Director Nels Taber, the diesel spilled off the well pad and into a neighboring farmer’s field. “Talisman is extremely fortunate that it did not impact surface water or wetlands,” Taber told the press.

The company reported the spill to DEP, but has been unable to explain the cause.

According to the DEP press release, discharging the diesel fuel without a permit violates the Clean Streams Law, and failing to manage the waste properly violates the Solid Waste Management Act.

Cleaning up the spill required the excavation and removal of 3,800 tons of contaminated soil. It also meant collecting some 132,000 gallons of contaminated water - from which 450 gallons of diesel fuel was recovered. You can read the DEP press release here.



It sounds like some are losing interest in drilling or a smoke screen.

We have been vindicated I believe.  All those years people didn't believe us about the dead birds in northern michigan and now it is happening again.  I think it is Methane.  If you hit the link blow and scroll halfway down the page you will find May 16,2004 dead birds were found and the DNR (Department of Natural Resources) quickly, yes quickly, came and picked them up.  That agency in my opinion does not do anything "quickly".  
Those poor birds and fish.  
No messing with mother nature.  Scary stuff happening.  
Now would the people in Northern Michigan like to hear what I have to say (and we)??????
