Help Save Dimock, Pennsylvania

Posted by Greg on Feb 4, 2010 in Op-Ed |

Came across the distressing news that back in November, Cabot Oil, based in Houston, TX, started drilling into shale in the fields of Susquehanna County in northern Pennsylvania, in the hopes of attaining natural gas. While their efforts are commendable, how hard is it for someone to go about this methodically and with a careful, fool-proof plan. Instead it sounds like they attacked the whole project like a bull in a china shop. Now residents are taking showers with tainted water and drinking from tap water that’s off-color and foul smelling. Natural gas is great and all, but not for a cost like this. For more details on attempts by Northern PA residents to stop the drilling, head on over to the Damascus Citizens Web site.
