Laurel Lake Creek Mud Inadvertent Return: Update

Laser Pipeline drilling polluted Laurel Lake Creek, and this is their present resolution plan to stop the mud from further leaking into the creek. The Pipeline is presently stopped from drilling by DEP and waits new plans and approval from DEP to resume drilling. filmed 8-14-11

This unfortunate accident- actually 4 mud blowouts- in Laurel Lake Creek, Susquehanna County, PA, is just another example of what can happen in the gas drilling industry. The pipeline company has admitted that it is surprised. It is not familiar enough with the geology of PA. But that doesn't stop them from going right ahead and trampling all over the place, taking risks with an exceptional value creek.
