Drop by drop by drop, PA's waters are being $iphoned away from future generations of Pennsylvanians and sold to the natural gas industry.
According to a notice by the Susquehanna River Basin Commission published in the Federal Register today, between the period of October 1 through November 30, 2012, the SRBC approved 37 projects - all for the natural gas industry - allowing consumptive use ( i.e. never to return to the water cycle ) of 178.1 million gallons of water per day, or put another way, 64.97 BILLION gallons of fresh water per year.
Gee...I wonder how many red-blooded river advocates attended the SRBC's December 14th quarterly meeting?
This is a tragedy.
