Urge Governor Corbett: come clean on drilling pollution
Tell Governor Corbett and DEP Secretary Krancer to start giving the public better water and air tests, complete results, and honest answers
When it comes to shale gas, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PADEP) seems to have forgotten if they work to protect the public, or the gas companies.
Right now, when PADEP tests drinking water for drilling pollution, DEP only reports partial results to homeowners—leaving residents in the dark about information they need to protect their health and safety.
Incomplete reporting also makes it easier for the gas industry to deny contamination that could be happening. And PADEP may be letting companies get away with pollution they cause.
PADEP scheduled a meeting with environmental and citizen groups to discuss the issue—but then abruptly cancelled it.
TAKE ACTION: tell Governor Corbett and Secretary Krancer that PADEP needs to stop playing hide and seek and start giving the public better water and air tests, complete results, and honest answers. They also need to reschedule the planned meeting and answer the questions they’ve been asked.
