TRURO – A second public meeting to discuss updates regarding Debert fracking wastewater will take place in Truro this week.
Environment Minister Randy Delorey will be in town for the meeting that will be held in the Oak Room of the Holiday Inn on Prince Street this Wednesday night at 7 p.m.
Lori Errington, media relations advisor with Nova Scotia Environment, confirmed with the Truro Daily News that the meeting will include discussion on the “next steps” as the minister said he’d communicate “before anything as finalized.”
About 80 people attended a meeting in Truro at the end of January when environmental officials indicated the water was deemed safe for disposal. That was based on a provincial study of the treated hydraulic fracturing wastewater of samples at Atlantic Industrial Services.
