RIVERKEEPER NY’s clean water advocate

gas drilling in Dimock


Dimock, PA residents, whose wells were contaminated by Cabot Oil & Gas’s fracking operations, will receive some relief today when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) delivers clean water to four of the eleven families that have been victims of irresponsible fracking.  These families have gone without a reliable source of water since November 30, when the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (PA DEP) allowed Cabot to stop its weekly shipments of fresh water.  Since then, Riverkeeper has featured a counter on our website documenting the months, days, hours, and seconds PA DEP and Cabot have denied families the basic human right of clean water (a count we will continue until these families have a long-term solution).

EPA is still collecting data in Dimock, and we hope that EPA will decide soon to deliver water to all of the affected residents. 

The victory today in Dimock reminds us of why it is so important for New York not to rush to permit fracking.  Even though the comment period on New York’s fracking proposal is over, you can still take action. 

Call Governor Cuomo today – (518) 474-8390 – and tell him that you don’t want what has happened in Dimock to happen here.

Then, commit to calling him every Friday to tell him you don’t want anyone to frack with your New York water.
