Operation FracNET

(Thanks to PA Environmental Digest for this post)

During an inspection sweep conducted by the PA State police  131 Frac Waste Water hauling trucks were placed out of service. The breakdown included:

  • Troop A (Cambria, Indiana, Somerset and Westmoreland counties), 140 inspections; 27 vehicles placed out of service; no drivers placed out of service; 72 citations;
  • Troop B (Allegheny, Fayette, Greene and Washington counties), 194 inspections; 26 vehicles placed out of service; one driver placed out of service; 72 citations;
  • Troop C (Clarion, Clearfield, Forest, Elk, Jefferson and McKean counties), 94 inspections; eight vehicles placed out of service; three drivers placed out of service; 25 citations;
  • Troop F (Cameron, Clinton, Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Potter, Snyder, Union and Tioga counties), 180 vehicles inspected; 37 vehicles placed out of service; one driver placed out of service; 123 citations;
  • Troop P (Bradford, Sullivan, Wyoming and part of Luzerne counties), 57 inspections; 21 vehicles placed out of service; seven drivers placed out of service; 25 citations; and
  • Troop R (Lackawanna, Pike, Susquehanna and Wayne counties), 66 inspections; 12 vehicles placed out of service; two drivers placed out of service; 104 citations issued.

We need more sweeps like these to aid in ensuring that these Gas Operators are operating within the guidelines set forth by PADEP and other agencies.
