In Abingdon, 75 protesters tell their supervisors to “Get the FRACK out of Washington Co.”
Their words fall on deaf ears as tea party-led BOS votes unrestricted gas fracking virtually county wide.
Meanwhile DMME is considering treating water testing differently in SWVA than in Tidewater. Strong regulation to protect the coastal aquifer, but not so strong regulation in SWVA, where one Regulatory Advisory Panel said, “There are not aquifers in SWVA.” Well buddy, where does all the ground water come from. Governor McAuliffe issued an order to begin differential treatment. OUCH!!
