Fracking Waste Water Being Dumped Legally Into California's Coastal Waters

According to information from Truthout.org, KCET-TV in Los Angeles and  RawStory.com, an oil company has been given the go ahead to dump hydraulic fracking fluid waste water directly into the Pacific Ocean.

Oil Company DCOR has been given the green light from federal regulators to dump the poisonous chemicals from off shore oil platforms into the Santa Barbara Channel.

From Rawstory: " The Center for Biological Diversity filed a petition Wednesday asking the Environmental Protection Agency to rewrite those federal permits to put an end to the practice and to develop national guidelines for disposal of offshore fracking wastewater." And "The fracking wastewater contains toxic substances such as methanol, benzene, naphthalene, and trimethylbenzene, as well as lead and arsenic that comes from deep inside the undersea rock formations."
