Fracking waste deemed too radioactive for hazardous-waste dump
A truck carrying fracking waste was quarantined and then sent back to where it came from after its contents triggered a radiation alarm at a Pennsylvania hazardous-waste landfill. The truck’s load was nearly 10 times more radioactive than is permitted at the dump in South Huntingdon township.

Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection spokesman John Poister confirmed the drill cutting materials from Rice Energy’s Thunder II pad in Greene County had a radiation level of 96 microrem. The landfill must reject any waste with a radiation level that reaches 10 microrem or higher. Poister said DEP instructed MAX to return the materials to the well pad where it was extracted for subsequent disposal at an approved facility.

Pennsylvania is currently studying radiation issues associated with fracking of the shale and disposal of the industry’s waste.

'Currently studying radiation issues'! It's a bit late to start studying isn't it?

We had a fracking site closed down here down the street from me due to all the earthquakes they were causing us.This was in Youngstown,Ohio.So what did the owner do out of revenge?He dumped all the fracking waste into our river!
I have cracks in my walls from the earthquakes and a severely polluted environment!rant

Cheap energy comes at a cost..

Apparently, the price is the right to a clean environment and good health.
