We all need to take a moment and decide what is really important in our lives. Are we going to allow our children’s and grandchildren’s water supplies and environment to be damaged?
Are we going to let others control their futures?
Is it time we took on this task ourselves?
Yes, it is time to take action!
Luzerne County is about to be hit AGAIN by the negative effects of the natural gas industry.
An application for a permit for a Frack Water Treatment Plant has been submitted to the County for Meeker Outlet Road (the old Harveys Lake Gun Club property), in Lake Township. As a result, three or important and irreplaceable water sources will be at risk.
Frack water is known to contain toxic, carcinogenic chemicals, and the application specifies that there will be 30 or more 20,000 gallon storage tanks installed at the site, as well as radioactive contaminant testing areas. In addition, anticipate a future with non-stop frack water trucks traveling 24/7, back and forth over our back roads.
Harveys Lake, Harveys Creek and other important tributaries run near this location. Recent news headlines reflect recent explosions and toxic spills that render affected areas uninhabitable and the water unusable. (West Virginia is still reeling from a recent spill that rendered their water useless!)
Is this what we want for Pennsylvania?
Is this what we want for our homes and the future homes of our children and grandchildren?
If you object to this facility being built in Lake Township, and/or you want to learn more, plan to join members of the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition (GDAC) at the following events:
