A fracking operation in Wyoming County malfunctioned yesterday send thousands of gallons of fracking fluid shooting skyward. It is unclear how much, if any, of the liquid escaped the drilling rig site. According to reports, a “temporary” catch basin was constructed “across the road” to corral the liquids which flowed from the site. Officials are investigating the incident. No injuries were reported as of this morning.
It is ironic that yesterday’s post discussed the expnsion of natural gas drilling into Wyoming County. Events like this will not help ease concerns in New York and elsewhere.
