Natural Gas & Coal Fly Ash Water Pollution in Greenwood Arkansas

March 18, 2011

Pollution from fracking wastewater pits in Greenwood Arkansas is draining into Vinyard Creek and Greenwood Lake.

Wildlife like deer and domesticated animals like horses and cows all love salt.  When natural gas drillers leave salty fracking fluids exposed and those brines and fluids happen to be infused with toxic chemicals (or also mixed with coal fly ash in this case) these animals get sick or worse yet die.

    Do all coal burning plants leave the toxic fly ash in the surrounding area of their plant?
    Is it possible to recycle the fly ash into brick mortar or cement?

    I think a lot of the ‘rabid’ animals are being poisoned by the water too. Not traditional rabies, but from fracking and all the things big oil like Littlefield and Haliburton here in Greenwood area are doing. We had tons of ‘rabid’ animals this past Fall and the numbers don’t even reflect usual totals nationwide. I reported our water. We live off 10 highway and it is oily to the taste and yellow-brown!! It’s disgusting. Have to use bottled water, and the water for the pets has to be filtered or the heavy metals in it cause algae bloom and pet water molds in a day or two!
