PennFuture describes how you can take action to keep drilling from polluting Philadelphia’s drinking water supply.
Regulations that would safeguard our drinking water and public health have cleared one hurdle but we need you to speak out now to keep the momentum going.
Last week the Environmental Quality Board (EQB) approved new regulations that would protect our drinking water, rivers and streams from gas drilling wastewater and wastewater from other industries including mining – thanks to your help.
Now these vital regulations will go before the Independent Regulatory Review Commission (IRRC), as well as the House and Senate Environmental Resources and Energy Committees. These new standards will force drillers and other polluters to pay the costs of protecting our waterways; it’s no surprise that they are fighting back, urging the IRRC and legislators to stop the regulations.
We need you to counter the big industry lobbyists by sending a message to the IRRC and key legislators. Email them now, and let them know that the health of residents, and our economy, relies on clean safe drinking water and rivers and streams.
