Shale Gas Opponents Not Surprised With Violation

Chris Rendell is a member of Hampton Water First and he tell CHSJ News the incident will give us a taste of things to come if the industry gets off the ground.

He says we expect the same profit-centric reasoning when it comes to safety, water, and pollution issues.
