The Delaware River Basin Commission held a meeting on September 21, 2011 in Ewing NJ.
Although Hydraulic Fracturing for Natural Gas "Fracking" was not on the agenda, about 150 Anti-Fracking Protesters came and demonstrated outside the meeting and then entered into the general meeting.
At the end of the meeting there was almost 90 minutes of public time allowed for general comment. Over 50 very committed voices from the Anti-Fracking community from NJ, PA, DE and NY spoke during this time.
I have tried as best with little minimal editing to have the majority of those who spoke to be heard.
The DRBC has scheduled a special meeting from 1:00 to 3:00 pm on October 21, 2011 at the War Memorial in Trenton, NJ to “consider adoption of the regulations”, which would lift the current moratorium on gas drilling in the Watershed and allow drilling and Fracking to start.
CALL to ACTION October 21 DRBC will meet 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Patriots Theater at the War Memorial 1 Memorial Drive Trenton, N.J to decide whether to permit Fracking in the Delaware River Basin
If you want to make a statement about gas drilling and Fracking in the Delaware River Watershed, if you’ve ever written a letter, attended a meeting, rallied or protested, and want to make sure it mattered, if you had to pick one thing you could do that would really be heard, come stand with us on October 21 in Trenton. This is our chance to stand together and insist on protecting our water!
