Are you seeing water changes such as sputtering from the faucet, change in color, smells, black sludge in your appliances, black sludge in your pipes, or water tests that show high barium, strontium, manganese, E. coli or methane?
Any one or more of these signs shows that you probably have been “fracked” by nearby gas drilling – and it can be more than a mile away.
Call your nearby Department of Environmental Protection office and get more tests done. Confer with your neighbors and see you are not alone. There are many of you throughout our state.
We need to support one another and reveal this massive change in our water since the advent of gas drilling in our neighborhoods.
Make your own support groups. Or contact me, a member of Citizens for Clean Water, and we will meet and discuss the issues, what to do about it and how to get help; in solidarity, we can be powerful to reveal this outrage in our communities.
Contact me via email, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone, at 570-918-0004.
I keep meeting families in eight sections of Susquehanna County with major water issues; they cannot drink or bathe in their water, or they experience health issues if they do drink it and bathe in it.
We have universities that are willing to test and study the water changes in our county. I can let you know the contact information for them.
