When I posted this video of an oilfield worker urinating on private property, I received emails from all across this country and even from Canada. It seems we have forgotten something in our drilling ordinances and that’s to require industry to provide toilet facilities for their workers. Unbelievably, they frequently do not. In this case the porta-potties were turned on their side and the landowner suspects the contents were dumped into the pit. But the worker could have used the facilities in the camper he was
standing urinating in front of.
Several people said they can no longer walk on their property or through the countryside because of all the human feces left by oil and gas workers. I know this sounds unbelievable but I’ve heard it from so many different people now that if only 50% is true it’s still way beyond shocking and entirely unsanitary.
I don’t have a category for this post.
