#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Burning Trees and Pipeline Trash
If you are a pipeline builder, how do you get rid of some of the pipeline trash and some of the trees you felled for your right-of-way? Burning! We don't need this extra air pollution.More

#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Muddy Stream
In comparison to the OVC, the MXP is much longer and crosses many more streams. What happened here could likely happen during stream crossing done anywhere by any pipeline company. It seems like the construction company had a significant lack of proper, accurate planning, and a total underestimation of stream flow volumes.More

#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Muddy Roads
Pipeline construction makes mud, which makes it way onto public roadways. Sometimes it's a nuisance, sometimes it's a hazard. More

#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Dusty Roads
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.More

#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Dirty Diesel Trucks
This extreme amount of filthy diesel fumes was absolutely unnecessary here, or anywhere. Newer trucks burn cleaner. No community resident should be subjected to getting stuck behind one of these junk trucks. Diesel fumes have known health impacts. But such is the regard of these companies for the communities they impact, and such is FERC's regard for the communities the agency subjects to these kind of impacts.More

#Fracking #Pipelines in Your Neighborhood: Traffic — What a Clustertruck!
In its MXP DEIS, FERC states that the proposed pipeline construction would only be a minor inconvenience to residents. The daily restriction of routine travel my neighbors and I experienced went way beyond minor during the 11-month-long construction period of another pipeline. Our experience completely contradicts what FERC states.More

SM-80 Pipeline Construction in Wayne County: Before and During
We have been monitoring the construction going on with the SM-80 replacement segments in both Cabell and Wayne counties. Reminder: this very old Columbia pipeline is being “renovated” in our backyards, because of Columbia’s larger (36-inch diameter) proposed pipeline—the Mountaineer Xpress—which will connect to it at a compressor station in the Milton area. The comment […]More

Winds of Change, Spring 2017
On January 19, FERC (the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission) approved the Leach Xpress pipeline. This 36-inch, high pressure pipeline for fracked gas would bore under the Ohio River near Camden Park in the Huntington area. Starting on page 4, read about this and the 8 other large-diameter pipelinesMore

Assault of the Ohio River: Waste Dump or Drinking Water? – Part 2
There are no less than nineteen newly proposed pipelines in the Appalachian region and the industry will do what is necessary to get the fracked oil and gas out of the area to export terminals. Several of these pipelines will go under the Ohio River and given the extensive list of pipeline explosions and accidents in the United States, this scenario could result in massive contamination of the drinking water source for millions of people.More

Assault of the Ohio River: Waste Dump or Drinking Water? – Part 1
The mindset that it was okay to use the Ohio River as a waste repository never really changed. Unfortunately, today the Ohio River has earned the auspicious title of being the most polluted river in the United States and has maintained that title for seven years in a row.More

Our Moral Imperative is to Protect Water, Not Fossil Fuel Corporations
We believe that we have a moral imperative to resist fossil fuel foolishness! Big investments in the already growing renewable energy sector are desperately needed. Investors in solar and wind energy are seeing some higher profits on their investments than those investors still bankrolling fossil fuels.More

Error 404: WVDEP NOT FOUND
For folks like me, who often have to access the WVDEP website's information, the last two weeks have been a struggle. When we try to use DEP’s online databases, we are greeted with an error message or an ironic image of a sad face. That’s because the DEP’s servers have stopped working and have been down all this time. More

Shale Gas Pads Do Not Belong in Valleys (AKA Hollers)
A recent essay of mine described the Fracking Re-Invasion of Wetzel County,10 years after it began. When shale gas drilling started here in Wetzel County WV in 2007, it had already been causing problems for a few years right across the state line to the north, in Green and Washington counties in Pennsylvania. (12 years […]More

Call Now to Rein in Alarming REINS Act
REINS could severely hamper any kind of regulatory oversight of industry from any and all government agencies (such as the EPA, the Food and Drug Administration, etc.); it is broad and far reaching in its scope. The Koch brothers and other industrial moguls are said to be advocating for this legislation.More
