Stand up for Fayette County’s frack waste ban!
This Friday, June 10th at 10am, the Fayette County Commission's historic ban on oil and gas waste disposal is being challenged by EQT Corporation. EQT is seeking a permanent injunction against the ordinance to make these kind of county-wide bans unenforceable. We will be doing our best to make sure our ordinance stands, to set a precedent in Fayette County that will uphold other county's rights to enact similar ordinances. But we need your help!

SB 601 also puts our local and regional solid waste authorities at a competitive disadvantage with the so-called “recycling” facilities that are being deregulated, jeopardizing the public investment in these facilities.

“Taste of Fracking” Comes to Charleston
“Don’t drink, cook or even bathe in the water,” I heard the announcer say on public radio tonight. Not something you hear everyday about your tap water. On the drive home from the capitol I stopped as did most everyone else to pick up a case of water. However, most were not buying a case […]
