Our look at the
JOHN DAY UNIT

  WASHINGTON COUNTY, PA - 2009 horizontal drilling led to Spring 2010 fracking at the John Day Unit, which is one-mile from Trinity South Elementary School in Amwell Township, Pa.

This Marcellus Shale gas drilling unit is near a MarkWest compressor station on Johnson Road, and not far from the Bedillion-Day Unit.

Pa DEP Fine

Permit Num: 125-23797
Municipality: Amwell
County: Washington
Well Name: Day 8H
Company: Range Resources
Incident Date: 4/2/2010 and 4/22/2010 
Inspection Date: 4/22/2010
Fine Date: 2011-06-28
Fine: $40,975
Group Fine: Yes (4)
Lead Permit: 125-23169 (2)
Violation: Spills; on 4/2/2010, while unloading a truckload of hydraulic fracturing flowback fluid into a tank on the well pad, a truck driver overflowed the tank and an unknown amount of the fluid spilled onto the well pad, soaked through the rocks and came out of the fill slope of the pad near an unnamed spring; then on 4/22/2010, a collection tank overflowed and about 150 gallons of hydraulic fracturing flowback fluid spilled onto the ground, went over the hill and into a sediment trap, before bleeding through the trap and entering an unnamed tributary.
Response: Company said on 4/2/2010 it contained the spill and cleaned it up, using fresh water to flush it off the well pad; contaminated soil and rock was excavated and disposed of in a landfill and then backfilled; however, the state did not have personnel available to investigate the day of the spill and no photos to verify how much or where the spill occurred or whether it impacted the spring; on 4/22/2010, company said it tried to contain the spill, placing absorbent pads in the sediment trap, and it later excavated contaminated soil and stone and disposed of it in a landfill and then backfilled the site.
