Police: Vandals Spilled Brine At Bradford County Drilling Site
Authorities say a brine spill at a Bradford County drilling site was an act of vandalism.
More from the Sun Gazette:
Officials from the state police, state Department of Environmental Protection and Talisman Energy are investigating the suspected criminal mischief incident, which released between 8,400 and 21,000 gallons of fracking brine into the containment area on the well pad.
Police described the incident, which happened earlier this week, as “intentional tampering.”
DEP’s Oil and Gas Program was notified Tuesday morning of the spill.
The well pad is off of Ayres Road in Canton Township. It is the site of four producing Marcellus Shale wells.
