Drinking Water at Risk: Please urge your Governor to enact a fracking ban in the Delaware River Watershed

The Delaware River Basin Commission, a regional governing body that protects the health and safety of the Delaware River Watershed, is made up of the four governors of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, as well a representative from the Army Corps of Engineers.

In 2017, the DRBC released a proposed fracking ban and draft gas regulations that would allow fracking wastewater to be treated/disposed of in the basin and for Delaware River water to be exported for fracking elsewhere.

Clean Water Action, along with a diverse group of organizations from the watershed states, is calling on the governors of our states (NY, NJ, PA, and DE) to vote NO on these proposed rules. We cannot allow the DRBC to put the drinking water and the health of 15 million people at risk by allowing toxic waste to be brought to the basin and clean water to be taken out.
