Job 1 for 2010: Tame the Marcellus Shale drillers.

    Marcellus Shale drilling - Photo by Constance MerrimanTaming the Marcellus Shale drillers may be one of the toughest fights we’ve ever taken on. National gas drillers from around the world are coming to Pennsylvania to tap one of our most valuable natural resources – natural gas in the vast Marcellus Shale formation that underlies most of the state. Some of the drillers are conscientious about protecting the environment, but many are not. This brings tremendous risks to our land and water. And right now, those risks are being shouldered by local communities and environmental treasures.

    In almost every state that has substantial natural gas deposits, drillers must pay a severance tax on the extraction of the resource to compensate for the depletion of the resource and for damage done to the environment and public infrastructure. But not in Pennsylvania.

    But just passing the tax on drilling won’t help our land, water, wildlife or local communities. We also need to weed out the bad actors. Our law staff is looking at the problems popping up around the state as Marcellus Shale drillers expand their operations – wells contaminated, roads and forests destroyed, and streams and rivers left with all vegetation and fish dead or dying. We are looking to file legal actions where necessary, but we know any legal cases we bring will come at great cost. That’s why we need your help – right now.
