The Map of Your World

This tells you everything you need to know. No kidding.

I really am going to concentrate more on this fine place I've dug for myself, soon. In the interim, I've discovered that gas and oil leases in my home county, Bradford County in Pennsylvania, has seen a huge uptick in gas and oil leases in the last few years, with plans to use injection well methods in which the poisoned waste-water is allowed to drain back into the ground. . .hmm. Hope you like a little crap in your water, folks. And trucks on your backroads breaking shit down.

I don't know enough about it yet, but I don't trust that anyone will do the right thing anymore. Here's an article from the Wyalusing Rocket-Courier for more:

It seems it is only a matter of time, and not all that much time at that, before there are injection wells in Bradford County. That was one of the points made Tuesday night at Towanda High School by a panel of experts on the process. The other point, expressed over and over again, is that this deep underground disposal of gas production wastewater—where hundreds of thousands of gallons of water are utilized at each gas well site for drilling and fracturing—is seemingly safe with multiple protections in place to ensure drinking water is not tainted.
