Halleck is such a Jackwagon! That stream will dry up with in a month. Why does he think he's GOD? The only thing Halleck is can be summed up in one word, AS**OLE

Halleck appears to be the one and only commissioner. What are the other two doing besides being Halleck's "yes" men? Something is wrong with this group!

It looks like Halleck is trying to get rid of a county employee. He must have a buddy that needs a job. If it was such a big deal why didn't the ema head get a letter?

Is Newbold being paid to let his assistant call the shots? So far his appointment is an embarrassment.Halleck said as a former SEAL he was very security minded. More smoke from the "party". Hats off to Dillard for being able to see a security weakness and taking action. Must be another ringer coming to the EMA as soon as they can write her up a few more times. The commissioners don't realise they are not part of this agency no matter how bad they crave power.

The streams are never drained dry. Multiple sources are used for gathering water. I've seen it myself. Once a well is done they move to another area and get another source. Stop the "sky is falling" stuff. We live this thing called fracking and see right through the scare tactics.

If the EMA has to come out swinging in a full blown disaster the commissioners will be run over by the feds and told exactly what they will and will not do. Just another local entity without power. Probably drives them nuts to be considered as one of the great unwashed.

The real telling part of this is others have access to the swipe card machine and can change any buildings' code at will. There is no security at the courthouse except the men at the door.

HEADLINE: Fracking With Bad Water

"...you have the need for large amounts of water for the dramatic increase in fracking operations that don’t need to use fresh or potable water but are presently using both fresh and potable water from these very dwindling supplies.

This looks to be an opportunity too good to pass up. Let’s use the mine water for fracking and stop using the precious fresh water. Sounds easy. And the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) is trying to do just that."

Apparently the Pennsylvania EPA isn't hesitant about using POLLUTED water in fracking operations.

So, anyone think those who oppose fracking will protest the EPA?

Since the anti's cry of ruined wells fell flat they have switched to the next topic. The exhaust from the engines that run will be next or deer hit by semi's in the coming fall or sound of the rigs affecting animals with no basis. It's all about money to quietly go away and look for the next protest.

The water that comes by my place near Gavers doesn't come from Guilford. I guess the narrative of dry streams falls apart if you look at a map.
