Water Withdrawal

The withdrawal of millions of gallons of clean water from any stream, let alone two protected trout and trout-spawning streams, would be a violation of DEC §703.2 Narrative water quality standards for flow. The replacement of this formerly clean water after hydrostatic testing with water now contaminated with oil, drill cuttings, biocides and other unknown substances would be a violation of DEC §703.2 Narrative water quality standards for Taste-, color-, and odor-producing, toxic and other deleterious substances; for suspended, colloidal and settleable solids; and for oil and floating substances.
