The Penn State Institutes of Energy and the Environment recently released a map showing unpaved roads in Pennsylvania, each of which could become new dumpsites, if the General Assembly passes pending legislation legalizing the road dumping of conventional oil and gas drilling wastewater.
The primary areas to be affected would be unpaved dirt and gravel roads anywhere there is conventional oil and gas drilling in the state.

The bills– Senate Bill 790 (Scarnati-R-Jefferson) and House Bill 1635 (Causer-R- Cameron) are both now in the House Environmental Resources and Energy Committee– and are said to be on a fast track for action.
