Stop FRAC Drilling

Marilyn Hunt’s speech from Canonsburg EPA Hearing

July 22, 2010

My Well is Contaminated.

We are running out of time: contamination is spreading.

Our water has been contaminated with cyanide, benzene, toluene and other deadly chemicals. We need to stop the dangerous practice called FRAC Drilling and Protect our Lives and Natural Resources.

We are running out of time.

An Economic War is being waged against the United States- Our rights are being violated by these FRAC Corporations.

In 2009, the state of WV Failed to test drinking water. We began a volunteer program testing for volatile organic contaminants. The results are shocking and frightening. Corporations have been allowed to poison water and contaminate land. The secondary drilling waste has been spread on public roads and into major rivers.

The   highways and roads leading to these FRAC sites have been damaged and destroyed. Crimes of prostitution and drug distribution accompany these projects.

Workers are dying. Site are unregulated. Chemicals and silica are causing cancer, tuberculosis and silicosis. We are running out of time. To live we must have clean water to drink and air to breath.

Canonsburg is the historic site of Nuclear Contamination- let us make this meeting an historic victory for Human Rights.
