A Must Read: Injection Wells: The Poison Beneath Us - ProPublica

A Must Read: Injection Wells: The Poison Beneath Us - ProPublicaGod, people are so, so stupid / selfish! If they had asked me if they could do this, I would have said, "Absolutely not." Thousands and thousands of these injection wells are leaking. All the greedy monsters have done is push the poison down so it will greatly haunt humanity after those greedy ones are dead. Satan really is the god of this world. This article is part of the proof of that.

Records from disparate corners of the United States show that wells drilled to bury this waste deep beneath the ground have repeatedly leaked, sending dangerous chemicals and waste gurgling to the surface or, on occasion, seeping into shallow aquifers that store a significant portion of the nation's drinking water.

In 2010, contaminants from such a well bubbled up in a west Los Angeles dog park. Within the past three years, similar fountains of oil and gas drilling waste have appeared in Oklahoma and Louisiana. In South Florida, 20 of the nation's most stringently regulated disposal wells failed in the early 1990s, releasing partly treated sewage into aquifers that may one day be needed to supply Miami's drinking water.

There are more than 680,000 underground waste and injection wells nationwide, more than 150,000 of which shoot industrial fluids thousands of feet below the surface. Scientists and federal regulators acknowledge they do not know how many of the sites are leaking.
