MONTICELLO – A Delaware River Basin Commission engineer says the two states that share the upper Delaware River are reasonably up to speed with Marcellus Shale exploration.
William Muszynski they are paying particular concern to water resources. How much water would be drawn for each drilling operations, what chemicals would be added to the water, and what is done with the waste, are key issues.
The DRBC and most Sullivan officials say the exploration and drilling will happen.
Muszynski, and County Legislature Chairman Jonathan Rouis say they believe the state is up to speed, but legislator Dave Sager disagrees. Sager said both the state DEC and the DRBC are dropping the ball.
