Barges of brine on Ohio River?

Barges of brine on Ohio River?

What are your thoughts on shipping barges full of brine down the Ohio River for disposal purposes? The Ohio River serves as a fresh water source for so many people. In light of such, we have, to date,  been unable to find any specific safety studies to show the impact of this potential new cargo and the impact of seepage/spills. What will be the result of the leaking of brine into our watershed? There are just so many questions, with few answers at the moment. Here is a link to a recent article discussing the status of the "brine shipment" controversy.

Please give us your thoughts or other data.
