Adding Frack Water to Acid Mine Drainage?

It ordered a seventh firm to stop injecting “frac fluid” and brine it receives from drillers into an abandoned mine near Saltsburg in Indiana County, Pa.

This is a little publicized waste water practice.  Hard to even comprehend.  Abandoned mines seep water forever.  What is the thought behind mixing in frack water?  Unbelieveable.
