Pennsylvania’s rivers and streams provide billions of dollars of direct and indirect economic benefit to the Commonwealth’s families, farms, and industries. These benefits are now threatened to a greater extent than perhaps at any time since the 1960s due to manufacturing, abandoned and active mines, and gas drilling operations that produce wastewaters that contain dangerous levels of total dissolved solids (TDS), or salts.
As natural gas drilling continues to grow in Pennsylvania, rivers and streams throughout the state will continue to be threatened unless the problem is addressed by a comprehensive regulation.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has proposed regulations that will start to address this threat by limiting the TDS levels that new sources of pollution can discharge into Pennsylvania’s rivers and streams. These regulations will insure that the cost of protecting the state’s streams and rivers from contamination by high-TDS wastewaters will be borne by drillers and others who create the wastewater rather than by those who are dependent on rivers and streams for recreation, drinking water, agriculture, or other uses.

You can help protect Pennsylvania’s rivers and streams by speaking out in support of the proposed regulations at any one of four public hearings that DEP is holding across the state:

Monday, December 14, 5:00 p.m.

Thursday, December 17, 5:00 p.m.

You must sign up in advance to speak at one of these hearings. To do so, call the DEP at 717- 787-4526.
We hope to see you there!

Repower America

Vice President Al Gore discussed his latest views on the climate and politics in a number media appearances before heading to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Vice President Gore responded directly to the current media fixation surrounding the recent release of climate emails, calling it a “controversy without substance.”

Watch and listen to his interviews on CNN’s American Morning, NPR’s Marketplace, MSNBC, and CNN International.
