Update on Wastewater Dumpers

We reported yesterday that John Morgan, a site supervisor for Kansas-based Swamp Angel Energy, and Michael Evans, part owner of the company, were to be sentenced on environmental violations.

We have now learned that the two men were sentenced to 3 years probation, home detention, fines, and community service.

The Judge also sent a message to drillers saying, “If you fail to comply with the regulatory scheme in the Allegheny National Forest, including the permitting provisions, there will be serious consequences[…] You cannot dump with impunity and essentially thumb your nose at the regulatory system.”
