5,000 West Virginia Citizens Oppose Fracking Radiation Burial
Highly radioactive waste is being dumped in Fayette County permitted by the WV Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP). In just one Lochgelly injection well, for example, the equivalent of 3,606 railroad tanker loads of oil & gas waste has been forced into the ground. Further, the WV DEP is allowing this waste to be dumped into abandoned coal mines. Yet Fayette County hasn't moved to stop this devastation, even though it has authority to do so under §7-1-3kk of the West Virginia Constitution.
