Mystery, questions and concerns continue to surround Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) policies for testing water that has been suspected of being impacted by Marcellus Shale natural gas operations. These issues were originally brought to light when it was revealed that DEP doesn’t report full test results to residents, depriving them of critical health and safety information. People have a right to know ALL the results whether good or bad. Let the state know that you want them to release all water testing results from gas drilling investigations!
The regulators are not doing their job again. And - together - we must do something about it.The Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) has the job of protecting the Susquehanna. Clean Water Action needs your support in a vital campaign to get the Susquehanna State Governors (Corbett, Cuomo, O'Malley) to protect the Susquehanna from the negative effects of Fracking. The SRBC, which is run by Pennsylvania, New York, Maryland, and the Federal Government, is supposed to be the chief protector of the Susquehanna River.
One the biggest fears for people living near drilling is the possibility of their drinking water being polluted. We expect the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) to look out for us, to safeguard this vital resource and to alert us when issues arise that may impact our health and drinking water. Unfortunately, DEP has let us down -our trust has been shaken and eroded by the recent uncovering of a controversial DEP policy and practice. You can help us change it and protect our communities today!
