Oops! Range Resources killed more fish up in Pennsylvania.
Last week in a 6 to 1 vote, Denton City Council opened the door to dirty industry and allowed Range Resources to drill 5 natural gas wells right next to a Denton neighborhood.
Brush Run tributary site of spill
Range Resources said Friday that a temporary above-ground water transfer line connection failed Tuesday night and discharged about 250 barrels of partially recycled flowback and fresh water into a small, unnamed tributary to Brush Run on private property in Hopewell Township.
Here are a couple of pictures. This seems like a haphazard, careless set up to me.
Range had another spill in May. That time they blamed it on “vandals.” I can’t wait to see their next excuse.
Range is a profitable company. Maybe they need to spend a little money upgrading their equipment.

Here in California, one oil company, Greka, has a habit of blaming all their spill problems on vandals. Yet, local Sheriffs & FBI have said nothing that proves those claims, and the state keeps on with lawsuits to make them clean up their act.
