The Philadelphia Inquirer just published an editorial urging the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) not to lift its moratorium on natural gas drilling in our area. From the editorial:

It would be illogical for the DRBC to lift its moratorium before the results of the EPA study are known. There should also be a review of the impact in this watershed. The most sensible course for the 15 million people who depend on clean drinking water in the Delaware River watershed is for the DRBC to extend its ban on drilling for now.
