Another fracking roadblock

The Gallant Government plans to make it even harder for companies that want to frack for natural gas.

Environment Minister Serge Rousselle says disposing of hydraulic wastewater in municipal systems poses an unacceptable risk to the environment and to the systems. So amendments to the Clean Environment Act will ensure that wastewater from fracking in New Brunswick or even from other jurisdictions doesn’t end up being disposed of in Municipal wastewater systems.
