Imprudent position

Regarding fracking at Deer Lakes Park: Really? The Post-Gazette thinks it’s “prudent” to blast millions of gallons of chemical-laced frack fluid beneath a publicly owned county park with a lake that people fish in (“Prudent Drilling,” March 24)? How many advertising dollars from the oil and gas industry did it take to arrive at that “prudent” opinion?

And what happens if a water test reveals that radium-226 (with a half-life of 1,600 years) has been released underground from fracking and has reached the lake water? Will the county executive’s office post signs with skulls and crossbones, Mr. Yuk and the county seal alongside the lake? That sure would be the prudent thing to do.
