Protect Delaware River from Fracking

Update: Victory! Collective outrage from people who depend on the Delaware River for drinking water and recreation overwhelmed the Delaware River Commission, forcing it to cancel its November 21 meeting.

On November 21, the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) will vote on a plan that would allow for 20,000 or more fracked gas wells in the Delaware River Basin.

The plan not only would threaten the drinking water of millions, but would forever industrialize and contaminate this precious and currently pristine watershed.

The Delaware River Basin Commission is an interstate body with five voting members - the Army Corps of Engineers and the governors of Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York

Please call you governor and tell him to vote "no" on fracking in the Delaware River Basin.

  • New Jersey Governor Christie's office - 609-292-6000
  • New York Governor Cuomo's office - 518-474-8390
  • Pennsylvania Governor Corbett's office - 717-787-2500
  • Delaware Governor Markell's Office - 302-577-3210
Next, call the Army Corps of Engineers to urge them to vote "no" on fracking in the Delaware River Basin.

Leave a message for Jo Ellen Darcy, Army Corps of Engineers - 703 697 4672
