3. I thought your story was headed for a different conclusion

Several decades ago there was an issue with the disposal of hazzardous liquids. Millions of gallons are generated constantly and are always in need of proper disposal. The costs are enormous and the process has always been open to corruption. It was not uncommon for outfits to be busted dumping wastes illegally on private and public lands. I recall one entity busted for unloading on Interstate Highways during heavy rain storms to cover their tracks.
Back in the 70s and 80s any semi seen in remote areas was suspect, the profits were huge.
Funny thing is, when fracting started up these practices disappeared. We knew millions of gallons of "proprietary" solutions were being pumped underground but we're unable to ever identify what they consisted of.
I have always suspected the two issues are tied together.
