Ok so what would you like to see in this pathetic Valley if it's not this miracle boom that can bring prosperity like "the good old days" with polluted rivers,asbestos breathing,smoke stacks we still revered? This is going to be regulated until the investors get to the point they can't make money and we will be back to landscapers and mortgage originators and an exodus other than government jobs welfare and union workers like we love around here... Where did anyone get an idea that with something new and profitable there are no risks? Are we this stupid? There are few options in industry in these days and the threat of some temporary ground shaking and foul tasting water until they get it right is worth it.

Water testing is available,but a third tier test (includes the BTEX )is over $300.00.Since our saviors are SO sure there will be zero negative effects to our waters,why have they not offered to pay for periodic testing of private wells and waterways as a good show of confidence?They could start testing now as a baseline for future comparisons.Please don't tell me its too expensive for oil and gas companies to do this..please!
