Antero dedicated more than a quarter of a billion building the dump near our drinking water intake. And now they want to argue that their financial interests outweigh the interests of public health and welfare: "Our profit is more important than your lives."
Governor Justice's administration is jamming through the Antero Frackwaste dump, that will threaten so many families with the same sort of future that Minden, WV, is experiencing right now.
Antero's frack dump has been purposefully sited in the peripheral zone of concern for the drinking water intake for about a third of the population of Ritchie County.
How in the world can we transition to a sustainable economy if we don't invest in helping our actual people?
