Energy Corporation of America violations (actual report)

Last week I posted information about Energy Corporation of America and it’s record of violations and fines in Pennsylvania. I posted a link to a page on the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection web site so you could generate the report yourselves.

Several people wrote and asked me to post the actual report, so, in the interest of transparency, I’m posting it today.

If you want to generate the report yourself, go to the Pennsylvania DEP web site. Be patient. The site is slow loading. I used the settings below to create the report, so you should be able to create exactly the same thing by using these settings (click to enlarge).

You can view the actual report I generated by clicking on the link below:
ECA PA Compliance_010108_013114

There’s a zoom function at the top of the page if you want to enlarge the type size.

Compelling stuff. One Carbon County resident told me, “It breaks my heart to see all the damage they caused.”

About davidjkatz

The Moses family has lived on the Stillwater River since 1974, when George and Lucile Moses retired and moved to the Beehive from the Twin Cities. They’re gone now, but their four daughters (pictured at left, on the Beehive) and their families continue to spend time there, and have grown to love the area. This blog started as an email chain to keep the family informed about the threat of increased fracking activity in the area, but the desire to inform and get involved led to the creation of this blog.

    David,

    I want to thank you for your consistent, factual and informative postings on Face book and blog. Too often the gas issues are publicized with fiction and scare tactics without the backing of accurate data. We share the same concerns here in Idaho where a newly regulated industry has written the laws for their benefit.

    I am in the process of assisting public officials and citizens of Gem County develop an ordinance to hopefully protect against the adverse impacts from gas extraction. The citizens have taken the stance to provide local control by “pay as you play” concept, thus hopefully making it economically prohibitive for gas companies to operate at free will.

    Noted below are links that may be helpful. Of particular interest may by the proposed citizens draft ordinance on ProtectGemCounty.org that will be addressed by our zoning department on February 18th.
