Whoa! 2 Million Gallons of Toxic Fluid Spilled On Ohio Wetlands, Feds In...

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), which is overseeing the development of a new interstate natural gas pipeline, has opened an investigation into the spill of 2 million gallons of toxic drilling fluid on Ohio’s wetlands.
The spill from a horizontal directional drill operation was first reported to the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency in April.

On May 10, FERC confirmed the leak of 2 million gallons of bentonite-based drilling fluid from the Rover pipeline which had covered 6.5 acres, or 6.5 football fields, of Ohio wetland.
