LETTER TO THE EDITOR
More disclosure needed on fracking process
Avon Town Attorney:
Hydro fracking — what are the Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) for the chemicals used during the process?
When the chemicals are combined underground you have a completely new chemical combination, so what happens when the chemicals combine, a new MSDS sheet should be produced.
Does it make an acid when combined with the minerals underground? This also creates another chemical combination. So another MSDS sheet should be produced.
They will be stealing gas off of thousands of landowners without the mineral rights to the properties. Which is unlawful.
It could destroy the whole milking industry in Western New York, plus destroy millions of acres of agriculture. Costing hundreds of billions of dollars in damage.
If there is 100s of thousands of gallons of contaminated water that needs to be processed each month then it is guaranteed to be billions of gallons in the aquifer that will be contaminated.
No one has disclosed anything about the process, everyone side steps the process that occurs underground.
