Anyone expect Corbett's DEP to honestly report on storm related fracking pond overflows?

I pass along these observations from Pittsburgh's Doug Shields. As you see in this photo of a typical fracking pond set-up - if this one overflowed, it would not only poison the surrounding farmland, but get into other bodies of water:

This storm is an opportunity for the DEP to determine the integrity of frack ponds.

With the predicted amounts of rainfall for the region, I have some very serious concerns about Frack Ponds and their ability to contain their contents.

If you have a Frack Pond in your area, keep an eye out for spills, overflows and the structural integrity of the impoundments. And document problems if you see them.
