Thanks to my growing network of contacts on the north branch of the Susquehanna River, yesterday I was made aware of yet another 2 million gallon per day withdrawal site being proposed on the Susquehanna near Sugar Run, PA by none other than Chesapeake Energy. The proposed site is only a few hundred yards downstream from where the Susquehanna continues to bubble methane...thanks to Chesapeake.
If my reckoning is correct, the proposed intake point is less than 100 yards downstream from where a local outfitter launches their canoes and kayaks into the Susquehanna for trips to Laceyville and beyond.
Take your pick, folks. Paddle through a bubbling field of noxious gases...or maneuver around the warning buoy where the water is being silently sucked away, laced with toxic chemicals, and pumped underground under extreme pressure - ne'er to be seen again...or so they claim.
This must be stopped.
