What: Please turn out for the DRBC’s informal conference followed by a public hearing on Wednesday, Dec. 5th 2012. Urge DRBC to exercise its jurisdiction over new fracked gas pipelines carrying explosive methane gas, now being proposed and built throughout our watershed. Pipeline drilling across streams and rivers causes sedimentation and erosion damage, is accompanied by many drilling mud spills which harm aquatic life, and induces further shale gas drilling with escalating cumulative damages to air, water, soil and climate.
