CALL TO ACTION: Submit Your Public Comment for the DRBC's Written Record on Water Contamination Concerns Regarding Fracking

We need to protect our drinking water by protecting 
the Delaware River Watershed!
Click Here 
to tell the DRBC not to endanger our river with toxic shale gas drilling.

Posted by: Noël Jones

The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) has proposed regulations that allow shale gas drilling in the Delaware River Basin, the source of Philadelphia’s drinking water. The DRBC is only accepting public comment on water contamination concerns until April 15th--Please take a moment right now to click the link above and submit a comment!

The New York Times recently confirmed that gas drilling wastewater with radioactive elements, toxic chemicals, and salt is being and has been discharged into rivers across Pennsylvania.

If you do not want your way of life destroyed--in other words, to be made seriously ill (as 19 families in Dimock, PA just 2 hours north of us have), to have to purchase bottled water and tanks of water every month for cooking, bathing, cleaning and drinking, and to have your property values destroyed (because who will buy your house if you can't drink the tap water?) then please do this now to speak up and fight for our tap water!

And please pass a link to this post to everyone you know!

As the dialogue moves forward, the DRBC and anti-fracking groups will be using the total number of submitted public comments for, and against, to weigh in the decision making process as to whether or not to allow thousands of new gas wells to be drilled in our water source--the Delaware Watershed--THIS SUMMER.

Please carve out time to click the link and submit your comment now, and then forward this post to everyone you know and ask them to do the same before it's too late. We do not want the DRBC saying that residents are fine with this and not at all worried about carcinogens, neurotoxins, radioactive material, and endocrine disruptors getting into our drinking water!
