Assessment of Effluent Contaminants from Three Facilities Discharging Marcellus Shale Wastewater to Surface Waters in Pennsylvania

Assessment of Effluent Contaminants from Three Facilities Discharging Marcellus Shale Wastewater to Surface Waters in Pennsylvania

Key findings:
Wastewater treatment plants can’t handle this water’s high levels of contaminants (including benzene and barium): Water flowing out of the plants into the environment still has elevated levels of the chemicals from natural gas production.
Concentrations of chemicals found in gas production waste (barium, strontium) drop significantly after the plants stopped taking the fracking waste.
