They don't even want to drawl it out of the creek, the article says out of wells. Which no one knows where that water source comes from. Their could be 30 other people that depend on that same source, or 100 yards away could be a completely different source. So I really see no need to gamble with it. Get the frackin water elsewhere.

i dont see how it brings jobs to the area. these gas.s.holes bring their staff from texas and elsewhere. seldom do you see PA people. maybe a few, but not what they promise. this whole withdrawl from lycoming creek of all places shouldnt even be a debate. but you leyman, might as well forget fighting, the big people will whip out money and your wishes will be wiped out.. ive seen in mid summer how low the creek gets,during a dry spell. this isnt good drawing out that much water a day when or if it gets that low.

First off, I have no problem with the big picture. But all these folks that do are a good thing, because if no one keeps an eye on the industry, they will take advantage of everything. I do not understand why, with all the "rural" land in the area, they would want to do this in a largely residential area though. I can only think of one reason, the Ecks see a way to make more profit off something that does not affect them in any way. But hey, everyone here is all about buisness making money & the workers working for chump change, so let your republicans decide for you whatever they feel. After all, they don't really care about the enviroment any more than the do the blue collar worker.

Shouldn't be a concern right? After all, it brings jobs and money to the area, right? And we all know that's much more important to all the shortsighted politicians and many citizens.
