DEP threatens Luzerne County: Why?

"The state Department of Environmental Protection says it plans to resort to forced entry on Luzerne County property to address a flooding threat because the county refused to grant access."

In doing a quick scan for articles about the protests @ DEP offices on Earth Day, I tripped across this headline:


You can read the entire article here.

Where there were three boreholes, the DEP now wants to drill five. And they're in such a rush that they're threatening "forced entry" to get it done? I wonder...will the DEP folks be armed when they bust down the barriers? Will tanks be involved?

I'm not much of a conspiracy theorist, but the DEP under Tom Corbett is not to be trusted. Considering the natural gas industry is hot-to-trot to get water for fracking from any source possible, including tainted AMD as outlined in this article,  this "threat" reeks of catering to the needs of the natural gas industry and more than likely has nothing to do with protecting citizens from flooding.

Think I'm wrong? Hang back and watch as this whole thing unfolds.
