Fracking in PA - less than 800 signatures to go!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

ANYONE can sign, not just PA residents. This involves pumping poisonous waste deep underground, where it often ends up contaminating our environment and drinking water. Those water reports we've been getting from the water company every year may not be entirely truthful. Don't let them get away with fraud!

 

"When homeowners suspect that their water has been contaminated by drilling in their area, they can ask the DEP to check for metals, organic material and volatile organic compounds (VOC). Depositions of two DEP employees allege that the DEP tests for all contaminants, but omits some of the most dangerous contaminants in their reports to the homeowners."

 

Very close to reaching goal of 15,000 signatures!

Thank you to anyone who signed... 10 months later and is still needs 650 signatures.  It appears to be still open for signing, not sure if this is a deadline or not. I can't figure out how to see when it was started, not that it matters.

My MIL lives in PA and has been fighting it for awhile, but she has cancer now, and has sort of given up.  She's come to terms with the fact that the lake her home is near will probably be ruined. I don't know how bad it is yet, though.
