#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Intro to a Dirty Picture Collection

Also see the companion blogs, all listed at the above link.

These few pictures, below, show some of the dust created by the pipeline construction here last year. Of course, during a wet or rainy season, there would only be mud on the road. Then the dust. The was a daily vicious circle.

The pipeline guys would first stop all traffic to pull out onto the roadway, then drop mud off their trucks or drag it onto the roadway where it would dry out, then they would again stop all traffic to run a power road-sweeper on the road.

Rather than keeping their mud on their right-of-way or work area, they would have to keep stopping all traffic so they could clean the road. They thought they were doing all of us a generous favor actually cleaning up after themselves.
