Gas industry choking on its own waste, part 2

Almost a year ago, I blogged about a study that suggested that the volume of wastewater being generated from hydraulic fracturing in Pennsylvania and Ohio could overwhelm Ohio's disposal capacity.  

Now, with the gas industry seeking to lower its mounting disposal costs, fears are being expressed in The Buckeye State and elsewhere as the U.S. Coast Guard considers approving the transport of fracking wastewater by barge

The risks and public angst about unconventional gas development continue to mount. 

When will the business case for squeezing the water out of fracking take hold?
