I just read in todays paper that they are going to try to set limits on how much we can pollute the streams and rivers that flow into Cheaspeak Bay.NJ and Pa already have rules in effect. This will effect both treatment plants and farmer/urban runoff.

When they do the hydro-fracturing they have to run the used frac water thru a treatment plant, which are not equiped to handle the waste now, with the current standards. NYS DEC must issue permits if the treatment plant is in compliance.None are currently, not without large cash infusions to upgrade. Will the new regs concernng the Cheaspeak Bay make these upgraded even more expensive for the treatment plants or will the drillers just truck the frac water and salt water from the gas recovery to a different watershed?
