Injecting drilling waste not a solution

So you think that injecting toxic drilling waste into deep aquifers solves the problem (Clarion, Oct. 25). Great. Do you understand that these toxic solvents and “drilling wastes” will eventually work its way into the aquifers that you, the residents of Kenai and Soldotna, draw your drinking water from? What are you thinking? We, the residents “on the North Road” have been threatened by 1.2 million gallons of toxic waste to be poured by AIMM Technoligies on suface aquifers. On top of the 50 years of irresponsible dumping in our neighborhood? You in the Soldotna/Kenai think the toxic chemicals will be 5,000 feet down, do you believe it? We ask people across the peninsula and to those who will stand with us to join with us in the public’s condemnation that toxic drilling waste must be dwelt with in a far remote area that will never endanger a community’s water supply.

Will the people of Soldotna and Kenai stand with the people out on the North Road that what is happening to them is also happening to us? AIMM is poisoning us all. When will we say “enough is enough?”
