Timeline PhotosFRACKING WASTE WATER TO BE USED AS DE-ICER IN NY STATE
Despite a moratorium on fracking in New York State, more than a dozen municipalities have received state approval to spread a fracking byproduct on their roads.
The fluid, called "production brine", contains high levels of chloride, benzene and toluene, all of which can cause health problems in humans and disrupt ecosystems, and can now be spread on roads in Wyoming, Erie, Cattaraugus, and Seneca counties, according to state documents obtained by @[276436719261:274:Riverkeeper], a group that advocates for cleanup of the Hudson River.
An additional ten municipalities in Allegany and Steuben counties have received state permission to spread waste brine from natural gas storage. Nine counties have banned the use of fracking brine on their roads because it contains pollutants, according to Riverkeeper scientist Bill Wegner. They include five along the Hudson River in the last year: Albany, Orange, Putnam, Westchester and Rockland.
