In the early fall of 2014 vantage was fracking in our neighborhood. Our well water was contaminated and we received a phone call saying it was unsafe to drink from Aqua the water company. It was yellow and had sand and particulates in it, due to the sand and participate in turn destroyed our pump which was less than a year old in our aerobic septic system. I’ve been told three others in my neighborhood had the same problem. This cost us $650 to fix.

The odor came into my home with doors and windows closed, my eyes burned…turns out it was Chesapeake drilling out the plugs and the “stale water odor event” was legal in it’s “routine operations”…others were sickened with health effects too, now I have a cataract and short term memory loss.Read more
My community has been impacted by oil and gas development for decades, but immediate impacts occurring since 1999.
We have water contamination issues; currently monitored since a well blowout in 2006. The monitoring project consists of over 100 monitor wells, 25 private drinking water wells, 6 springs and 5 points on the surface water flowing through our community. We have conducted community based air monitoring and have substantial emissions from production equipment.

Climate Change as a term tends to confuse people as to what it means and entails. Some people mean Climate Change as referring to anthropogenic (man-made) climate disruption. In fact Climate Change means more than that.Read more
Fracking pollutes the air, water, and land, contributes to global warming, and leads to health problems. Let’s use renewable energy instead.

I am here to convince you suspected water impacts from natural gas development are an emerging public health issue, a new frontier, and to ask you make it routine policy to have the PA DOH perform in vitro toxic assays on drinking water sources with suspected impacts from natural gas development in conjunction with PA DEP investigations.Read more
For over a hundred years the well on my family farm in Scurry County pumped water for orchards & gardens. Then our neighbor began selling water from his well to frackers. Following that, our well began drying up & now (as of November 2011) we no longer have any ground water whatsoever. Not only that, but fumes regularly drift over from frack ponds located 3 miles south of us & the list of symptoms we’re experiencing grows & grows. In short, our farm is becoming uninhabitable due to nearby fracking activity.

I have lived and tried to survive with fracking all around my home. The smell is awful (like rotten eggs, baby poop, ammonia and diesel)! I have had to wear a gas mask outside on many occasions due to the smell and the effects it has on my breathing.Read more
I pledge to never agree with tracking. If there’s ne more clean air, no more life, no more water which doesn’t set on fire straight from the tap, there’s be no more humans so no more reason to have and earn money.

I have not written this comprehensive statement yet. I have documented water and air impacts at my former home in Susquehanna County PA. I had well pads as close as 1500 feet from my home, about 20 wells within a mile of my home, and a large fracked gas dehydrator/compressor station about one mile from my home. I had health impacts from the water and the air, lived with gas well flares turning my sky into orange glows loud roaring sound…my bedroom walls flickered at night from flares. I can go on………………………………………

Es necesario detener la fracturación hidráulica, como una forma de salvar el planeta de la catástrofe ambiental y climatica.
The regulations are in no way Gold Standard. I have witnessed leaking chemicals during the 2014 fracking at Barton Moss. They vehicles carried to the site were, dripping from the vehicles delivering them, which means they had contaminated the roads on their journey to Barton Moss, as well as the area being fracked.Read more
