Open Evaporation Pits in Grandview & Erie Commons! Did you know???

We are still speechless from what was brought to our attention last week at the BOT meeting. Mr. Shane Davis from The Sierra Club provided us with some insightful information regarding open evaporation pits in Erie.  We were unaware that Encana Oil & Gas had been using such pits especially right next to homes, schools and playgrounds. Although the pits are no longer used and have since been back-filled, the reality of their existence has left us to wonder what else we may not be aware of and to possibly begin questioning health concerns of families in the area.
