Re: “Fracking fluid found in Clinton water supply

I’m a recent graduate of Hendrix College who lives in Central Arkansas and spends a great deal of time in Clinton itself. I have a problem with people constantly spreading their opinion across the net without doing any real research first to see if their claims hold merit. Please look further into what you are writing about before posting.

First off, images of the barrels and their labels are available on the internet, should you have chosen to look for them. They show the chemical inside is WT-22, which is NOT a frac-ing chemical. They transport frac-ing chemicals in trucks, it would not be practical to move them in barrels like these.

Furthermore, the barrels being in the creek HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY DRILLING COMPANY, NOR DID THEY HAVE ANY CHEMICALS IN THEM. Testing has proved it. I will repeat again for anyone who has issues understanding, the chemicals in the creek water DID NOT COME FROM THE BARRELS FOUND.

The barrels were sold to a local man to use for training his horses in BARREL RACING. He bought the barrels from the drilling company and they were empty when they came into his possession. The barrels ended up in the creek by being carried with the floodwaters during the storms which recently overtook and damaged many of the cities in our state – causing most to be called disaster areas.

I understand where you are coming from, OP, but spreading misinformation just because a news station post it without doing some of your own research first is doing a disservice to anyone looking for the truth.
