    Penn cattle quarantined over gas drilling ‘Diarrhea water’

    Posted by feww on July 2, 2010

    Pennsylvania officials have quarantined 28 cows suspected of drinking toxic waste ‘Diarrhea water’ from gas drilling

    “The cows had access for at least three days to a pool that formed from a leaking waste water holding pond on a farm in Tioga County, north-central Pennsylvania, where East Resources Inc is drilling into the Marcellus Shale formation,” Reuters reported.

    Subsequent tests showed the water contained a smorgasbord  of toxic chemicals including chloride, magnesium, potassium and strontium, according to the Agriculture Department.

Dimock is one of hundreds of sites in Pennsylvania where energy companies are now racing to tap the massive Marcellus Shale natural gas formation. But some residents say the drilling has clouded their drinking water, sickened people and animals and made their wells flammable. REUTERS/Tim Shaffer. Image may be subject to copyright.
