  • Gallows Run Watershed Association - President's Letter
    with new eyes The Gallows Run has shown its resilience in its ability to bounce back from unforeseen challenges The global impacts of climate weirding are on display nightly on the news as well not just in our backyards The nightly news also features a blitz of advertising from the natural gas industry Our small watershed became ground zero for blowback to Governor Corbett s over reaching Act 13 a blueprint for the industrialization of the entire Pennsylvania landscape with no zoning exclusions anywhere This past year the GRWA partnered with the Delaware Riverkeeper and PennEnvironment to present the consequences of the gasmen coming to town Anyone in the overflow audience at Palisades High School will remember our friends from Dimock telling their stories and displaying their post drilling well water Dr Paul Rubin presented a study of the geology of the Newark Basin commissioned by the GRWA that pointed to groundwater impacts of the inevitable failure of drill bore cement casings over time Nockamixon Township was among the group of municipalities that first challenged the Act s abridgement of the Pennsylvania Commonwealth s Constitution s protection of our air and water Our representatives in Harrisburg responded to the public outcry and moved to pass a moratorium on gas drilling in the Newark Basin We have achieved a state of limbo which seems a victory compared to those gas boomed areas in Marcellus Shale outside of the Delaware Basin We have continued an active monitoring on our website of the latest scientific studies of the impacts of fracking A growing alliance is building in recognition of the need to immediately move our energy system away from fossil fuels to stem the impacts for future generations of climate change The GRWA has also been in the stream cleaning up storm debris

  • Gallows Run Watershed Association - Sand-y Blasted: A Personal Story
