|Updates and Corrections Since the Last Bans/Moratoria Map
There are a few updates and corrections since the last bans/moratoria map I posted: http://www.fractracker.org/maps/ny-moratoria/
(Sorry, just as I was putting together this email, I got word that Penn Yan village just passed a 6-month moratorium. Will include that in the next update, but congratulations, PY!)
Also, PA Department of Environmental Protection provides well production and waste data. I've pulled out the sites in PA that ship their waste to NYS from January 2011 to June 2012. Click on the dots for pop-up windows with more information. Also, know that the second button from the left will expand the table of contents so you can toggle on and off the 2011 and 2012 data.
In 2011, 5 NYS landfills (Angelica, Lowman, Niagara Falls, Painted Post, and Waterloo) received a total of:
>213,724.44 tons of drill cuttings
>8590 Bbls of drilling fluid
>1320 BBls of flow-back fluid
>443.47 tons of flow-back fracturing sand
>445 BBls of produced fluid
From January to June, 2012, 3 NYS landfills (at Lowman, Niagara Falls, and Painted Post) received a total of:
>54,958.36 tons of drill cuttings
>8199.48 Bbl of drilling fluids
>55.7 tons of flow-back fracturing sand
Thanksgiving wishes to all who are doing such excellent work to keep New York State safe.
