Safe Barging of Frack Wastewater from Pittsburgh to OH Begins Soon

Last December MDN brought you the exclusive news that barging of shale wastewater (produced water) had finally been approved by the U.S. Coast Guard and that it would begin during the first quarter of this year (see Barging Fracked Wastewater on Ohio River Approved! Starts in 1Q21). Don’t look now, but that fact finally appeared on the radar screen of environmental extremists who have gotten their favorite “reporter” at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to publish a slanderous hit piece on the safe barging of shale wastewater “up and down Pittsburgh’s rivers.”
