Landowners With Contaminated Water
What: Jeff and Tina Richardson discuss how water contamination from gas drilling has affected their quality of life and property value. Hear their story, tell yours.
Landowners With Contaminated Water Reach Out
We are new to your organization and want to pass along some information about what is happening to us regarding natural gas drilling.
We live in Tioga County, PA, about a mile from Pine Creek Gorge. Shell drilling operations have contaminated our water supply. We are gravely concerned about the environment and our health. We are also seriously concerned about our property value.
The anxiety surrounding these issues and the time spent trying to resolve them have greatly impacted our quality of life. Even though the PA DEP has sent us a determination letter stating that gas well drilling has impacted our water supply, fracking is underway despite the well not being repaired.
We are trying to make others aware that this could happen to them. So we want to inform your organization. We feel that the more stories such as ours are reported to the public, the more people will understand how widespread this situation can become.
We are having a public meeting for informal conversation about our experiences and the experiences of others regarding natural gas drilling. It will be held on Tuesday, August 28, 7pm, at: The Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center 134 Main Street Wellsboro, PA 16901.
Thank you for your time.
Jeff & Tina Richardson
