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.
