Drilling continues in Heritage Park: Flare and open pit with toxic sludge

Drilling started again about a week ago and continues since then. Today a notorious flare appeared that burns very inefficient exposing wildlife and recreationists with toxic fumes containing VOC (volatile organic compounds).

On the below video you can see how little of the flame actually burns and how much is escaping into the air.

On the last video, you see once more the flare and next to it the open pit with a substantial amount of drilling sludge containing many toxic compounds that are bound to be buried as soon as drilling concludes.
