Take Action Now on Gas Drilling in the Delaware River Watershed!

DRBC Draft Natural Gas Regulations
Open for Comment through March 16, 2011

Please be there and bring your neighbors!

Feb. 22 Honesdale H.S., 459 Terrace St., Honesdale, Pa.
Feb. 22 Liberty High School Aud., 125 Buckley St., Liberty, N.Y.
Feb. 24 Patriots Theater, 1 Memorial Dr., Trenton, N.J.

  • All are 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
  • Two minutes allowed per person
  • Arrive 1 1/2 hours ahead to sign up to speak and get a seat
  • Bring signs to show our unity (no sticks)—visit DRN’s table for stickers

We need to come out and speak up at these Hearings to let the Commissioners know that the public interest in this issue and the proposed regulations is HUGE. It is very effective to show up in numbers and to speak on the record; when hundreds of people packed DRBC Hearings on gas issues in the past, it mattered. We wouldn’t have a gas drilling moratorium in place now if people hadn’t spoken up. PLEASE do what you can to come to one of the sessions.
