My statcounter told me that something was up again with Como.
Apparently Chesapeake has dished out enough cash and obtained enough waivers to proceed with their 21 well wellsite in Como. If the permits are valid, the drilling will proceed and in some cases it will be closer than 200 feet from where poor people live.
The rumor has it that as much as $300,000 was paid to the residents who signed waivers. That is great for those people who will promptly move away leaving their neighbors to deal with the heartbreak of health effects, diminished quality of life and wrecked property value.
The waivers will be carefully scrutinized for forgeries, fraud in the inducement, verification of ownership, capacity to sign, etc.
