More regs? Inspectors???

(Reserve Pit Near Greenwood, AR)

Teresa Marks, Executive Director of ADEQ, said reserve pits containing natural gas drilling waste will now be randomly inspected.  It looks like all the pressure from the Times and from other concerned citizens might be paying off.  As it stands, there aren't enough inspectors to randomly inspect every site.  Maybe with some help from the legislature, that will change.  Be sure to call your representatives and tell them you want more stringent guidelines for drilling waste, and more protections for our water.
