If a separator tank was leaking it should have never made it into a stream. EPA requires a earth****to be built around the tank to contain a spill. If it made it into a stream the gas company was in violation for not properly maintaining the dam. Gas wells are safe. The EPA needs to deal heavy penalties/fines for gas companies who dont properly maintain their equipment.

When I lived in N Jackson, many people had gas wells on their property. I never heard of even one single incident. But now, some of our neighbors (not us) have signed big fat contracts, so many people who did not have the foresight to buy land are now sitting around, complaining, saying it's the end of the world as we know it, the big evil 1%ers, the big evil Republicans...let's see, am I leaving anything out? It all comes down to this: "They got a sweet deal, I didn't, WAAAAHHH!!!"

I'm not so desperate or pessimistic to believe we're in immediate danger; nor am I so optimist or presumptive (naive?) to think that the crisis is a decade or more away.

Therefore, it would be prudent to make medium-term contingency plans to re-locate.

The question you must ask is, "When the BigOne hits, what do we do?"

Or, do we even wait for that to happen?

This industry has its complications. At least we haven't that many wells at the present. Wait until one ignites due to a complication. Modern day Russian Roulette ........ for the love of money. SAD

What do these greedy people think ?? Do they think that they can come into our community and just pollute it, poison some of us and then the men will just go go back to Mars and the women can go back to Venus, and they can take their money and go to the Bahamas ?!? Beam me up Scotty !! Let's think long and hard about this.
