PA DEP Determination Letters

“The Department investigation indicates that gas well drilling has impacted your water supply.”

Read Laura Legere’s investigative report on damage to PA water supplies.
Read how poor record-keeping by PA DEP blocks transparency.

Despite the oft-repeated gas industry canard that there are no confirmed cases of fracking contaminating water supplies, the following Determination Letters from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection clearly state  that “gas well drilling” has contaminated wells in Bradford County, in municipalities such as Granville, Tuscarora, Terry, Orwell, Wilmot and Monroe Townships, and in Alba Boro.

The letters posted so far were obtained by Right to Know requests to the PA DEP filed by Vera Scroggins of “Citizens for Clean Water” located in Susquehanna County.
