This is an old sludge pit that was never cleaned up per the state regulations. It sat for years until it was recently reworked and lined. A big black hose meanders about 1.5 miles in the bar-ditch and across creeks to deliver the toxic drilling waste from one drilling site to this pit. The curious thing is that the drilling site also has a sludge pit. That’s a log of toxic soup! Today this sludge pit was full up to the brim.
