The ongoing saga of the degradation of the Susquehanna River added a new page yesterday with the following:
"At this point, Eureka is planning to discharge up to 200,000 gallons of water a day into the Susquehanna River, said Dan Ertel, CEO of Eureka Resources."
Check out the entire story here.
In case you don't have time to read the article, here's another gem:
The discharged water will be clean enough to meet the standards for drinking water, said Kent McManus, Eureka's vice-president for engineering.
"Essentially we're making drinking water" at the plant, Ertel said at the hearing, which was held in the Standing Stone Township's municipal building.
I have a cost-cutting idea for Eureka. Instead of dumping it in the Susquehanna, why not bottle the "drinking water" you make at this plant and provide it, free of charge, to all of your personnel in the field and at your various offices?
