Comment on New EPA report sets record straight on gas drilling by creekviewcamp

Tue, 13 Dec 2016 20:57:32 +0000

Both reports cover the same data set. Its not the "science" (the data) that's changed, its the interpretation, the "spin". This really demonstrates how interpretations can range from little risk to major risk, based on the exact same data, to fit the writers' agenda. Exactly like the interpretations behind CO2 and climate change.



Comment on The Kanawha Valley water crisis class-action settlement: What we know and what we don’t know by Kimberly Kidd

Sat, 05 Nov 2016 10:32:00 +0000

I just want to be kept up-to-date for anything and everything that I need to do to receive compensation for this outrage. Everyone that uses this company's water was very affected by this negligence, but had a loved on in the ICU of a hospital, which caused even more problems, stress, and anxiety...



Comment on Six things we learned from the CSB report on Freedom Industries and the water crisis by Philip Price

Sat, 01 Oct 2016 14:14:27 +0000

The CSB did not fully identify the spill components. No chemical was identified that is acidic enough to account for the corrosion observed. The "record low temperature" they cite is grossly incorrect. Their calculations of MCHM flow out of the tank are suspect, not released, and cannot be verified. They ignored fact that all of the toxicology testing was done on the wrong material - NOT the [crude MCHM+PPh+HCl-water] mixture prepared at Freedom. The actual testing data to identify the spill components was withheld. They took the word of the convicted spillers as to how much material was spilled - there was no verification from all the MCHM cleanup and remediation.



Comment on EPA issues public notice – and huge report – about potential cleanup of dioxin from Kanawha River by Biologist

Sat, 27 Aug 2016 05:46:19 +0000

Clearly the Monsato consultants have no concern of ecology or the people, environment here, and are looking for the cheapest exit permissible without any lasting or adequate solution to their tainting of the river(benthic habitat) by this toxin . As a solution, the geotextile suggestion is putrid, and outrageously insufficient, Armored caps, textiles these are counter productive of what should be a restorative effort, as opposed to the irresponsibility and ecological impairment of an at best temporary cover up.

Please dredge as much contamination out of the river as possible for the health and safety of the people and future generations.



Comment on EPA issues public notice – and huge report – about potential cleanup of dioxin from Kanawha River by Mary Graham

West Virginia just had a thousand year flood in watersheds that drain into the Kanawha. If the EPA thinks this is anything but a band-aid, they are living a dangerous fantasy. The entire eastern half of the country is downstream and so are their grandchildren and great grandchildren. We need real leadership and real action, not this doublespeak about armor layer and geotextile. New York State is dredging Onondaga Lake near Syracuse, which received decades of toxic chemicals from Solvay Process, and West Virginia needs to do the same here with a cash boost from the industries that benefited from dumping this cancerous brew in the first place.



Comment on EPA backs WVDEP plan to cut newspaper notices by Lew McDaniel

Satellite service, in addition to being slower than landline internet access, is highly weather dependent. Heavy snow/rain often knocks out the signal.



Comment on EPA backs WVDEP plan to cut newspaper notices by Cindy Rank

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 18:39:10 +0000

For at least the past 35 years we've subscribed to our local newspaper precisely for the legal permitting notices. Broadband and reliable internet service may be the wave of the future, but it surely hasn't swept into the homes of many of us who live in the hills and hollers just outside the reach of cell and cable services. ... Satellite service which boasts of being fast - and it is faster than dial up, is expensive and slow and hardly conducive for pulling a goodly portion of our rural mountain population into the 20th century technology let alone into the 21st. For many West Virginians local papers are still lifelines to learning about permitting activities that potentially affect their lives and properties and as such are of utmost importance.



Comment on EPA backs WVDEP plan to cut newspaper notices by Lew McDaniel

These agencies all make the assumption that everyone has Internet access for checking notices. That is certainly not true in WV where about 1/2 the population is without Internet access. Seems to me government agencies are supposed to serve everyone, not just those who live in urban areas where that access is available.



Comment on Hearing Monday on WVDEP plan to cut newspaper notices for some air pollution permit applications by Lew McDaniel

Many issues the WVDEP deals with are in rural areas where there is no internet service. Either WVDEP is abandoning citizens there or expects those same folks to drive miles to a library just to see if something MIGHT have been posted.
