"Minor Spill" Reported in Bradford County, PA

A "minor spill" occurred  on Saturday, February 12, 2011, at a Talisman well pad near Alba, Bradford County, PA.  A spill of 1-3 barrels of frack flowback water was discharged (sprayed) onto the snow according to Daniel Spadoni of the PA DEP.  This sounds so innocuous.  However, it is the cumulative effect of all the minor spills and the major spills that will eventually cause a lot of damage.  Gas companies minimize the scope of these accidents.  I think we need to be very concerned about every one of them.

Here is the link to the Daily Review article.
