Public voices concern about injection well
August 27, 2013
BRADY TOWNSHIP- The EPA has reopened public comments about the proposed disposal injection well for Brady Township. The concern for many people in the area is the possible problems with seismic activity.
Darlene Marshall says that the research shows there have been problems with seismic activity and injection wells in other areas including problems in 4 other states.

“The EPA has opened public comments through September 11 for an additional issue about seismic activity. Different disposal injection wells have caused seismic activity.” Marshall said. “They are reviewing the proposed site for Brady Township to see if they put in the proposed disposal injection well if it would cause seismic activity.”

“Remember it is a disposal injection well which means they will pump waste into our area.” She said. She also said there is proof that there is a fault line in the area. There is currently over 100 pages of research information available at the public library for anyone to look at.

Marshall also said she has asked for letters of concern from The DuBois City Council, Sandy Township Supervisors, Brady Township supervisors and Clearfield commissioners. The deadline for these letters is also Sept. 11.

“We are thankful to the DuBois City Council, Brady township supervisors and all our local legislators who have been supportive as we have been opposed to this proposed injection well.” Marshal said.
