From a regular reader.
Reported an old pit full of oily stuff to the RRC.
Probably tells them to empty pit.
Here’s where it’s going about 1/4 mile away to one of those “surface” disposal wells in Booger County. Could this be Landfarming??
RRC is really tough on them. Well, the rain will just wash it off and the cows will eat the stuff. No problem!
This is a Chesapeake well. Chesapeake sure is hard on cattle and wildlife. Happens all the time in Booger County.

No, this is not a Landfarm.
RRC told me it’s just landfarming—-nooooo problem.
Operation continues, hose has been moved behind tree line so it’s not visisble from public road! Frac trailer and pumps(running) still there. Oily stuff still in field.
Spraying is back in roughly same position as shown in photo. Lots of stuff in field, oily smell. Wonder what is going on at the Armstrong #1 well?
Spraying continues–field getting wetter with oily crap–stinks.
Can you get more pictures? Are there cattle in the field now?
Early on cows were roaming in polluted grounds–then a day later they were standing in creek–like their feet were burning. Now, no cows. Pit is empty and the crap is on the nearby land. When rain comes, crap will perculate into aquifer and go to surface water. Nice system.
