DRBC – ENACT A PERMANENT BAN ON FRACKING

To the Delaware River Basin Commission voting members - the Governors of New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, representing the Basin states, and the Army Corps of Engineers, representing the federal government:

We, the undersigned, call for the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) to enact a permanent ban on natural gas drilling and fracking in the Delaware River Watershed. During the seven years of the DRBC drilling moratorium, scientific studies have exposed the harms, the damaging health effects are being proven, New York and Maryland have banned fracking, and the weight of evidence shows that shale gas simply cannot be extracted safely. 

The DRBC is responsible for protecting the water resources of the Delaware River Watershed — upon which 17 million people rely for their drinking water. This water supply and the Wild and Scenic Delaware River are irreplaceable. The time to enact a permanent ban is NOW.
