FrackTrack.org – The Website Drillers Don’t Want You To See

The most valuable tool for Pennsylvania water activists yet comes in the form of FrackTrack.org.  It’s Google Maps meets Fracking Facts in Pennsylvania. For example, do you want to know which is the closest waste treatment facility to accept frack waste near you? If you live in Montgomery County, it’s:
PSC ENVIRONMENTAL, SANDSTONE DRIVE, HATFIELD, PA 19442

To date, PCS Environmental has accepted 8073.32 tons drill cuttings, 40376.00 Bbls (= 42 gallons) brine and industrial waste, and 3660.00 Bbl Frac Fluid. Their biggest customer is Cabot Oil & Gas. They also service Williams Production and Appalachia LLC.

Interesting, right?

This is the best tool I’ve found to help me sort fact from fiction, legitimate hype from hyperbole. It gives the viewer a snapshot of where the 6,537 drilling permits approved to date are apportioned, what type each well is producing in terms of waste, and who is operating it. I am particularly interested to learn more about frack waste handling, treatment and disposal since that aspect of the Industry is alarmingly under-regulated in our state.

Sunlight is the best antiseptic, as they say, and FrackTrack.org strikes me as a brilliant ray of sunshine on some very important information! Check it out.
