EID-O's Shawn Bennett: "The Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD) recently held a hearing at the Conservancy Court in New Philadelphia to discuss the continued sale of excess water to oil and natural gas producers around the district. Selling this water would would bring much needed revenue for repairs and improvement within the watershed. The benefits these sales would bring, and the facts of the practices involved in the development of oil and natural gas however, were of no concern to those who stand in opposition to responsible energy development in any form.
The best-of-the-worst of Ohio activist organizations were in attendance for this discussion. Unfortunately, they seem to have left their facts at home."
It's the same in Pennsylvania. For the first time in months, they were amazingly quiet at today's SRBC meeting, though.
The referenced article is a terrific read, chock full of interesting statistics.
