Patrician, Rodney J. Passeri, Joseph J. PasseriJr. and John Passeri.•Sneesaid there wouldn't be any gas drilling-related activity on the 4-P Realty property. "There's no drilling going on there," she said.
"Just bring the water in; a couple days later, take the water out." According to documents filed with the county:
•Wavecoplans to have up to
30 settling and storage tanks
to hold the used frackingwater until it can be returned to drilling sites for reuse. They will be
45 feet by 10 feet with a capacity of 20,000 gallons
each. •These tanks will be cleaned out periodically, and
sediment and other such matter
"will be handled and removed according to all applicable state and federal environmental requirements."•The fenced-in site would take up less than an acre and have controlled access points with security monitoring. Trucks would be registered and undergo a
radiation inspection before unloading
. •Trained personnel would be on site during hours of operation, which would be between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m., and the company anticipates fewer than
25 truck trips per week in the initial phasesof the operation.
•Sneesaid there would not be a physical building to house the facility. The only structure would be a caretaker's shack, she said.
