Impoundment Ponds
These photos illustrate impoundment ponds and oil and gas waste infrastructure in various locations around the US. Though impoundment or retention ponds reduce the need for transport, the structures pose enormous hazards to the environment & public health, as not all of what is stored in these pits is freshwater. Wastewater from hydraulic fracturing can include corrosive, toxic, and/or radioactive contaminants.
