Webinar 3: Frack Waste Processing and Discharge – Thursday, January 18th
Join the Delaware River Watershed Frack Ban Campaign, represented by Delaware Riverkeeper Network and Berks Gas Truth, for a review of the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) draft fracking regulations that would allow wastewater produced by fracking to be stored, processed, and discharged in the Delaware River Watershed. As illogical as it seems, the DRBC plans to ban fracking in the Watershed but still allow waste from fracking elsewhere to be imported and dumped here. We’ll examine what the draft regulation says and what the issues are with this proposed activity.
The DRBC’s draft fracking regulations would allow water to be withdrawn from the Watershed for fracking outside of the Basin and wastewater from fracking to be discharged in the Basin and are currently open for public comment through March 30. Hearings on the proposals are in January and details about how to sign up are here.
