In just a few days, the Delaware River Watershed, which provides drinking water to 15 million people in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware, could be opened up to the dangers of horizontal Hydraulic Fracturing (also known as fracking).
The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) has proposed a plan to lift a three year ban on fracking and, for the first time, allow this risky new method of gas drilling, that has already contaminated water supplies across the country.1
The DRBC is meeting on November 21st to vote on the proposed regulations. Each state's governor, along with President Obama, have a representative on the commission. We need to strongly urge them to reject this dangerous plan.
Tell President Obama and your governor: Protect our drinking water - don't frack the Delaware watershed!
