He needs break out his check book because they are going to nail his butt to the wall . He will be lucky if he walks away with a fine and not jail time.He will be the " Case " that the governor can show around that they are tough on Fractal Drilling

probably gold in the water too which is also toxic but bariun sounds so much more awful. Neither are likely at unnatural levels or they would have said so. It's the kind of little game all government enforcement agencies play.

Nevermind that there was probably no actual pollution, just something they could deem illegal since spitting on the ground in commission of business can also be construed as a felony. Who needs business in america anyway.

Parent - first off, the Little M never gets closer than about 5-10 miles (through WN) to New Mat proper. Secondly, it runs TO the Ohio in the middle of Reno (where I like to fish, while there still ARE fish there). Thirdly, the point is that these materials are the SAME ones used in rodenticides, and my FAMILY in New Mat is concerned about this, as am I, but the town seems to be nothing but a dumping ground and nobody gives a ****

This has nothing to do with fracking, it was a crime, and Mr Armstrong will more than likely be convicted.

This is a prime example of why the practice of fracking MUST be watched and regulated and individuals like this that continue to ignore those regulations MUST be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

Yes this was only 800,000 gallons of water and the barium and sodium levels was low, but multiply this by 100 occurrences or more as the oil and gas development in our area grows and you have a real problem.

Those of you who make jokes about this issue, like ramon05, either choose not to recognize the seriousness of this problem or do not possess the mental capabilities to understand them.

What a waste of money, just because a little barium and sodium got in some water. It would be no different than if he had dumped rat poison in. Waste of our money it is. AND it's New Mat. I dont think they'd notice anyway
