Should fracking be Permitted Under Rivers and Lakes in Pennsylvania??—DLP Lawyers Fight for Personal Injury Victims in Wyoming, Bradford and Susquehanna Counties

Date: October 7, 2014

Many residents of Pennsylvania live along rivers, streams and lakes.  Pennsylvania is home to thousands of pristine water resources.  Since the advent of fracking and the natural gas drilling boom many of these people have raised concerns regarding water use and drilling near their properties.  Everyday, millions of gallons of water are removed from primarily Pennsylvania rivers for use in the fracking process.  It seems that people can live with this method of water use by the industry.

The issue of fracking underneath Pennsylvania rivers and lakes is altogether another topic.  Most people who live on lakes or river shores fear fracking underneath their water.  Just one leak or accident can ruin spring fed lakes.  This fear appears to be well taken as West Virginia has announced plans to permit fracking under the Ohio River.  Permits have not been issued but it is expected that they will be in the near future.   Will natural gas companies follow suit in Pennsylvania and apply to frack under the Susquehanna River?  Will fracking be permitted un lakes and ponds in the Commonwealth?  Because few regulations exist the answers are unclear and uncertain.  Environmental  groups are sure to be watching this issue very closely.
