Yes very salty water. The plants being considered in PA are going to use reverse osmosis to desalinate the water. I am not sure where NY would truck the water too since PA does not have enough capacity to process its own frac water. The plant under review in Tunkhannock PA will be able to process 1.3 million gallons of frac water a day and its estimated that 2 million gallons will be produced by drillers in the area. So every day frqac water will need to be stored somehwere. They are looking are re-using the treated frac water in drilling operations and some will be dumped into the Chemung River. There is naturally occuring radiation in the shale. treating the frac water will concentrate it.

BTW Charirock, Its beautiful in the finger lakes. I love visiting that area. I was just up there over christmas
