Get your deep mud boots ready... you'll need them when Rover rolls through.
May 10, 2017: Rover's response to the massive 2,000,000 spill of pollution, and the $430,000.00 fine slapped on them by the Ohio EPA because of the destruction: Rover says they don't answer to the states, but to the federal government. And, unhappily for citizens, right now the federal agency that should be overseeing them is not, due to a variety of bureaucratic reasons.
"Doesn't think there has been any impact to the environment"
"Inadvertent releases of 'drilling mud' aren't unusual during drilling operations."
