Delaware RiverKeeper Network is hosting an August 18 webinar Radioactivity In Fracking - Too Hot To Handle with scientist and author Justin Nobel from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.

“There is little public awareness of this enormous waste stream, the disposal of which could present dangers at every step — from being transported along America’s highways in unmarked trucks; handled by workers who are often misinformed and under protected; leaked into waterways; and stored in dumps that are not equipped to contain the toxicity. Brine has even been used in commercial products sold at hardware stores and is spread on local roads as a de-icer.”
