Philadelphia Inquirer Editorial: Is our water safe?

March 23, 2011

Add the Philadelphia Inquirer to the growing volume calling for a continued moratorium in the Delaware River Watershed.

“Growing doubts about the safety of high-pressure drilling for natural gas should persuade the Delaware River Basin Commission to extend its drilling ban.”

“It would be illogical for the DRBC to lift its moratorium before the results of the EPA study are known. There should also be a review of the impact in this watershed. The most sensible course for the 15 million people who depend on clean drinking water in the Delaware River watershed is for the DRBC to extend its ban on drilling for now.”
