For all of those people who think "that drilling stuff doesn't affect me", eat much produce or beef?
Tim Ruggiero says
I have a question- If the drilling mud is so 'beneficial' to pasture land, why isn't Big Gas SELLING it instead of having to PAY to have it dumped? Why do they also need a PERMIT to dump it? If it's so beneficial, you'd think there would be a market for the…stuff.
Stop with the logic.
Someone should look into whether these "mudfarms" and "landfarms" have an agriculture exemption for tax purposes? They should be taxed as industrial sites, not as agriculture "landfarms"! May want to ask your local crooked appraisal district?
