Testify Against the Dangers of Pipelines and the More Fracking and Drilling they Bring

On December 5th tell the Delaware River Basin Commission you expect them to exercise their authority over pipelines being proposed for our Watershed and region.

Without DRBC review there is no one looking at the individual or cumulative threats these fracked gas pipelines pose. DRBC is the one agency that can fill that critical gap. And they have the authority to say “no” if they want to.

DRBC review can yield information and decisions that could turn the heads of our governors, our president and others holding elected office – helping us build the support we need to defeat drilling, fracking and the pipelines they bring.

Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Delaware are all literally on the chopping block of proposed pipelines that would cut through the region.

With your pressure and that of tens of thousands, DRBC stepped in to regulate gas and a moratorium on drilling in the Delaware River watershed still stands today. Let’s ensure they also step up to regulate pipelines too to help our watershed as well as communities to the west where drilling is running rampant, supported and induced by … pipelines.
