Yea, I work down in your neck of the woods. Probably been past your house a few times.
Iv'e heard of Dimmock, but haven't been there. My question is, how is it they were able to do all this before without causing so much havoc? Or did they? I see well heads all over upstate NY that have been there for many years.
One guy up past Spencer, NY has issues with his well water having gas in it.
But your right on tight regulation, and accidents do happen. I'm not all for what they put in the ground(not that I know WHAT they put in it). And yes, we do get our share of "sourness" from the locals. They tend to take down street sign names, take pop-shots at us etc. But they need to channel that to the companies and the governments to get laws passed to change the way they do this.
And with all the money these companies have, do they not have the ability to research these things better? Use different technology? I mean come on, they have so much money, I know this one guy that leases about 2 acres of his land just so they could run a 16" water pipe line across the corner of his property. Guess how much per day? $1000 per DAY! And his property is a farm, which means he doesn't have to pay taxes on that.
PM your road name so I can tell the guys to be more quieter, lol.
