Range Resources faces fine over Pennsylvania fracking wastewater leak

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 05:45
By David DeKok HARRISBURG Pa. (Reuters) - Oil and gas producer Range Resources did not properly monitor leaks from a wastewater containment pond in Pennsylvania and the state has begun enforcement action that could lead to a fine, state officials said on Wednesday. A leak was detected earlier this year at the Yeager impoundment in Amwell Township in Washington County, in southwestern Pennsylvania, according to the Notice of Violation issued by the state Department of Environmental Protection on July 24. The pond contains a briny mixture of fluids, including drilling water that returns to the surface after fracking, the process that involves pumping chemical-laced water and sand underground to fracture rock to release oil or gas, said Range Resources spokesman Matt Pitzarella. "During its operation of the (pond), flow was often detected in the leak detection zone, but Range did not satisfy the permit's weekly chlorides testing requirements," the notice said.

To White's right are his 46-year-old son, Steve White; 24-year-old grandson, Jordan; 19-year-old grandson Jakeb, and farmhands Dave Dinn and Levi Fletcher. (AP Photo/Cindy White)INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — An 81-year-old Indiana farmer survived the crushing grip of an avalanche of corn inside a grain bin in part because he's "10 times tougher than the average guy," one of his relieved sons said Wednesday.

Massachusetts governor signs measure expanding drug treatment

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/07/2014 - 05:32
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick signed a bill into law on Wednesday requiring health insurers to cover up to two weeks of inpatient treatment for people battling drug addiction, the state's latest move to take on soaring rates of opioid drug abuse. The measure is intended to make accessing treatment for drug addiction on par with other medical treatments, which experts see as a key step to reduce the rising rate of deaths by drug overdose. More than 16,000 people die in the United States each year from overdoses of prescription painkillers alone, with more succumbing to heroin and other illegal narcotics. "This law puts Massachusetts on the leading edge of access to addiction treatment and recovery services," Patrick, a Democrat, said at a statehouse ceremony to sign the bill.
