Please write your comments to the DRBC in the space below. Each week we’re offering a different theme for comments. For a sample letter and more information on this week’s theme--climate change, the Delaware River Basin, and fracking--visit this page: http://bit.ly/2GrrCJ8
On March 13, 2018 Physicians for Social Responsibility and Concerned Health Professionals of New York released the Compendium of Scientific, Medical, and Media Findings Demonstrating Risks and Harms of Fracking, 5th Edition. The Compendium draws on news investigations, government assessments and more than 1,200 peer-reviewed research articles, finding that fracking – shooting chemical-laden fluid into deep rock layers to release oil and gas – is poisoning the air, contaminating the water and imperiling the health of Americans across the country. 

The health Compendium speaks to the simple fact that you cannot completely protect people from fracking operations. We cannot prevent accidents from happening. As documented many times handling wastewater in the Delaware basin will cause impacts and contamination. It is not a question of if but when and where.

This is a risk we cannot afford. After every spill, waste treatment mishap, or agency blunder, there is a potential health tragedy for the lives impacted. When you look at the compendium and see the documentation, know that the numbers, and the toxins involved they are not just statistics they are real people who bear the brunt of an industry that does not care. We have an opportunity in the Delaware Basin to ban fracking and to ban water withdrawals and wastewater containment facilities and waste water treatment and release.
