The Andes Town Board unanimously voted Tuesday afternoon to ban the use of hydrodracking waste fluids in the township.
Anti-fracking activists in Andes started digging through the garbage a couple of months ago, “fracking garbage that is,” said Bob Lidsky. “And it deals with the frack brine or flow-back after wells are fracked. We discovered the flow-back is a radioactive, chemical laden, heavy metal laced brew of unlisted, unregulated, hazardous chemicals.”
