Monongalia River Basin Commission Meeting!!--Alert

Marcellus Shale drill pads, fracking equipment, and pumping equipment once built in your neighborhood will be there to stay--FOREVER!!!!!!

Here it is: first they drill for Marcellus Shale-around 5000 feet down. Next, comes Utica Shale below that layer. Next comes another shale layer even below that one. Then finally, there is oil. Yes oil. An oil field that is bigger than the ones in Saudi Arabia!!! Pennsylvania is the next Saudi Arabia-and it will be accessed in your neighborhood.

Yes, heavy industry right next door to your home FOREVER!!!! There goes your property values, folks.

Coming Wednesday, March 23, 2011, 1:00-3:30,  is a very important meeting and information gathering scheduled at the Morgantown, WV's airport (Rt. 79 south. Exit at Star City.)

This meeting will be held by the  Issak Walton League of America. They will be holding the Monongalia River Compact Meeting and being joined by 43 watershed compact groups.

They will be discussing Marcellus Shale drillers, and the toxic water that has been found in the watersheds upstream of Pittsburgh/Western PA, and what can be done before it heads downstream into our own region. This group is called the Mon River Basin Commission.
