Nov. 05--A Snyder County facility processed about 357,000 barrels of fracking water and related drilling fluids, delivered by about 700 trucks using Routes 11-15 between July 2009 and June 2010, according to information on a newly launched state website.
DEP has a list of chemicals that companies use in their hydraulic fracturing fluids in Pennsylvania; however "We don't have exact concentrations because it's proprietary information of the companies," said Jamie Legenos, a DEP information specialist.
