4700 gallons hydrochloric acid spills Leroy Twnshp

https://stateimpact.npr.org/pennsylvania...-drilling-site/

There’s been another acci-dent at a north-east-ern Penn-syl-va-nia drilling site: 4,700 gal-lons of hydrochlo-ric acid spilled at a Leroy Town-ship, Brad-ford County well pad oper-ated by Chief Oil and Gas on Wednesday

The spill comes two weeks after a thirty-foot methane geyser erupted near a Shell nat-ural gas well in nearby Union Town-ship, Tioga County.

Leroy is the same town-ship where a Chesa-peake Energy well suf-fered a 10,000-gallon frack-ing fluid blowout in 2011.

Click here to see where the well pad is located.

The Depart-ment of Envi-ron-men-tal Pro-tec-tion is plac-ing pre-lim-i-nary blame on a valve fail-ure. “The acid breached con-tain-ment and flowed off the well pad,” emails DEP spokesman Dan Spadoni. “Some of the acid was col-lected in a sed-i-men-ta-tion pond, while the remain-der flowed through a field and some reached a small trib-u-tary to Towanda Creek caus-ing a minor fish kill. Dams were con-structed in the trib-u-tary before any acid reached Towanda Creek.”

Can-ton Fire Chief Kim Jen-nings, who also helped lead the cleanup of the Shell methane geyser, says the spill is now under control.

A valve fails and a spill happens, a small fish kill happens, you want them fined "Good"
The PFC dumps 1500 trout in water that is far to warm for them to survive, do you want them fined "good" also?
Mechanical error compared to human error. A difference in your mind?

That's right bawanajim, we should let them off the hook. Same with what happened in the gulf! Mechanical error! Right????? Hope your drinking water doesn't have a "mechanical" error.... Now let's see how fast and professional the clean up goes.......that usually involves human error, and a bit of corner cutting greed....

Its hard to argue with logic like that. Like I don't feel bad enough paying school taxes as it is.
