Hearings to Focus on Marcellus Shale Drilling Moratorium
The Delaware River Basin Commission will hold public hearings in northeast Pennsylvania to determine whether or not to strengthen its moratorium on drilling for natural gas in the river basin. The debate centers on landowners that say they should be able to lease the mineral rights to their land, versus the environmentalists that say the process of drilling for natural gas could pollute groundwater.
The vast Marcellus Shale formation and its lucrative natural gas deposits underlie much of the covered region of the Delaware River basin areas of New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. The agency has legal authority over water quality and quantity issues in the basin.
The drilling moratorium is in effect until the commission adopts gas drilling regulations.
