Pine Creek Toxin Spill

Pennsylvania General Energy has stopped natural gas drilling operations at a Waterville, Pa site after white soapy water was discovered flowing from its drill site.  This tainted spring runoff flows into beautiful Pine Creek.

It is believed to be 2-Butoxylethanol (2-BE), a foaming agent used for natural gas production proven to cause cancer in animals. See How Should We Do the Mountain for more details.
