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 allow the extraction of water and water resources from the Delaware River Basin to be exported to where fracking is allowed. We’ll examine what the draft regulation says and what the issues are with this proposed activity.

This webinar is the third in a series of webinars offered by the Frack Ban Campaign to share information about what is being proposed by DRBC and how you can meaningfully participate in the public process that will inform this historic decisionmaking – both the upcoming hearings and written comment.

Each webinar in January will focus on a different aspect of the draft natural gas regulations and the proposed ban. January 4’s webinar focused on why fracking must be prohibited in the Watershed and the various issues involved.

A Talking Points document with live hyperlinks to aid your research will be provided to all participants.

The DRBC’s draft fracking regulations would allow water to be withdrawn from the Watershed for fracking outside of the Basin and wastewater from fracking to be discharged in the Basin and are currently open for public comment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 February 28. Hearings on the proposals are in January and details about how to sign up to go are here: https://www.facebook.com/events/174877963101246/
