PennEast Natural Gas Pipeline & "Eminent Domain"
Special Presentation by Attorney Steven Richardson
of noted Washington DC Law Firm,"Wiley Rein LLP"

On Tuesday February 16th - at 4pm

Dear Concerned Property Owners,

If you are in the targeted route of the PennEast Gas Pipeline, it is recommended you attend our informational presentation by Attorney Steven Richardson of Wiley Rein LLP, a noted large Washington DC law firm.

In New Jersey, "Homeowners Against Land Taking" (HALT-PennEast) has retained this law firm to provide strategic & legal representation regarding intervention in & opposition to the PennEast Natural Gas Pipeline project & its application to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) & especially for a certificate of "necessity & convenience," also known as "Eminent Domain."

Atty. Richardson cites the firm’s decades of direct experience in FERC proceedings, including siting natural gas pipelines & associated Facilities, to assist landowners opposed to them for private profits, not public utility.

This firm cites its experience with FERC for hundreds of intervening landowners & parties dealing with the environmental, economic, & scientific controversies, by providing a broad portfolio of knowledge for all legal, policy, & political aspects of these issues- specifically the "Section 7 process" FERC uses to analyze, consider & determine whether to issue Eminent Domain permits for Natural Gas Pipelines.

Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition
will host Atty. Richardson

Tuesday February 16th, at 7pm

Reject PennEast Pipeline-
"Tear up their Lease offers"
Rally - Press Conference
Friday February 12th - 4pm
252 Manor Dr, Shavertown, PA 18644

Please join Concerned Citizens Against the PennEast Pipeline for the “Tearing of the Offers” on February 12th at 4:00 PM at 252 Manor Dr, Shavertown, PA. This is the kickoff of a series of four events to be held up and down the length of the proposed PennEast Pipeline to demonstrate to PennEast LLC and UGI Corporation that their project is unneeded, unwanted, and that their easement offers are unacceptable. In growing numbers landowners have been voicing their resolve against the threat of eminent domain and their opposition to this unnecessary project. Continued efforts by PennEast –to try to intimidate landowners into agreements- have been unwavering. In a fight for their lands and their lives, property owners will be tearing up their easement offers -to make it clear to PennEast- that there is “No Deal”.

Opponents up and down the length of the route who have refused PennEast’s unacceptable easement offers would be forced into eminent domain proceedings if the project were to receive the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) approval. Mary Leeds, will be kicking off the event with a statement about local opposite to the taking of land by PennEast using eminent domain and the many landowner groups who are forming coalitions and retaining legal representation, to prepare for the long battle against PennEast.

Leeds says, “A Kentucky appeals court has upheld a ruling that prevents the developers of the Bluegrass Pipeline in Kentucky from using the power of eminent domain to force property owners to sell their property. It would follow along that legal precedent, that if the PennEast Pipeline is not a Pennsylvania public utility and if the natural gas it proposes to transport through the pipeline in Pennsylvania does not serve the energy needs of Pennsylvanians, Penn East cannot be considered a public utility in Pennsylvania. It doesn’t pass muster with our US Constitution or even our Pennsylvania Constitution, to throw out the rule of law in favor of the interests of a for-profit corporation, who happens to transport fuel that produces energy”.

‘Marcellus Shale Reality Tour’ heads to Dallas (PA)

Published: August 14, 2015 in the Citizens Voice newspaper

http://citizensvoice.com/news/marcellus-shale-reality-tour-heads-to-dallas-1.1926690


"The Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition will hold the latest in its “Marcellus Shale Reality Tour” series with a screening of a new 20-minute video, “Atlantic Sunrise Surprise” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 19 at the American Legion post in Dallas, 730 Memorial Highway (state Route 415).

The 20-minute video shows the struggle of two women in dealing with a pipeline company that wants to use eminent domain to build a natural gas compressor station 500 feet from the farmer’s family home, and a pipeline that will go through both the home and the business of a horse veterinarian, shutting her business down for a year and a half.

The women in the film, Carol Mohr and Dr. Linda Quodomine, will be on hand to answer questions. Elected officials from all Luzerne County communities affected by the pipelines have also been invited."

Statement Presented by GDAC VP Diane Dreier
for PA Homeland Security Law Suit Settlement
Click for video of GDAC Press Conference, Luzerne Courthouse

About 5 years ago, a handful of citizens from the Back Mountain area of northeastern Pennsylvania became concerned about unconventional gas wells that were scheduled to be drilled in their communities. Gas industry representatives were holding informational meetings for elected officials and residents in affected municipalities. Many residents came away from those meetings with grave concerns about the effects of unconventional gas drilling on the environment and on public health.

Those concerned citizens formed the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition, known as GDAC, whose mission is to educate the public about the negative environmental consequences of natural gas extraction, processing and transportation. GDAC, at all times, conducted itself in a lawful and peaceful manner, with members using their First Amendment Rights to provide educational information to the public.

That’s why it was so surprising to learn, that in 2010, GDAC was mentioned in several intelligence bulletins issued by the Institute of Terrorism Research and Response, an Israeli-American Security Firm, under contract to the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency’s Office of Homeland Security.

As Philly.Com reported on 09/22/10: “The bulletins came to light after Powers (former Director of Pennsylvania Homeland Security) mistakenly sent a woman opposed to natural gas drilling an e-mail that said he wanted to "continue providing support to the Marcellus Shale Formation natural gas stakeholders while not feeding those groups fomenting dissent" against drillers. “

According to a report in Penn Live on November 7, 2010, “Regular readers of the bulletins could easily begin to view activists as a threat. The bulletins freely mixed references to actual terrorist activity abroad with warnings about the non-violent, lawful activities of Pennsylvania citizens”.
Then Governor Rendell apologized to the groups that were mentioned in the bulletins, saying that he was deeply embarrassed, and canceled the state contract with the Institute. According to published reports at the time, Rendell said that the information was useless to law enforcement agencies and that distributing it was tantamount to trampling on constitutional rights.

We agree with former Governor Rendell that this conduct by the Pennsylvania State Government was tantamount to trampling on our constitutional rights. We believe that collecting and disseminating information about groups that are engaged in lawful activities, and especially labeling those groups as potential terrorists, can and does have a chilling effect upon the freedom of speech guaranteed by the First Amendment to the Constitution that we all hold so sacred.

That is the reason that the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition decided to file this lawsuit in December of 2011.

Information on the rights of property owners, how to file comments with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), eminent domain process; and pipeline route maps will be provided.

As more natural gas wells are planned and drilled in Northeastern Pennsylvania, the gas industry requires more pipelines and related infrastructure, such as compressor stations, to carry natural gas to markets outside of Pennsylvania.

To date, there are five additional natural gas transmission pipelines proposed to be constructed in Luzerne County. Because the proposed pipelines are transmission lines, they will not provide new service hook ups to homes or businesses in Luzerne County. One of those pipelines, the Atlantic Sunrise Project, would deliver gas to terminals in Cove Point, MD and Sabine Pass, LA, for export to other countries, according to Williams Partners CEO Alan Armstrong.

The five natural gas transmission pipelines proposed for Luzerne and other counties are: Atlantic Sunrise, Leidy Loop Expansion, Diamond East, Penn East and Marc II; and are scheduled to go through the following townships in Luzerne County: Bear Creek, Dallas, Dorrance, Fairmount, Jenkins, Kidder, Kingston, Lake, Plains, and Slocum Townships; and West Wyoming and Wyoming Boroughs.

In addition to pipelines on private property, two of the proposed pipeline projects would cross under the Susquehanna River in Luzerne County. In commenting on the proposed river crossing route of the Penn East Pipeline Project, Eastern Pennsylvania Coalition For Abandoned Mine Reclamation CEO Robert Hughes has stated: "I believe that they should be concerned greatly that there could be the potential for mine subsidence, infiltration of surface water into the underground workings through fractured rock, excavation into the mine pool which could cause a new discharge to be created, or a breach into the levee system."

It is important that homeowners know their rights before being approached by a pipeline company. The Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition has joined with other organizations in Pennsylvania and New Jersey in opposing these proposed pipelines.

Statement for Earth Day 2014 in Luzerne County

In Luzerne County, there's not much to celebrate during this Earth Day 2014.

Our elected officials continue to put industry interests ahead of the environmental rights of their constituents as guaranteed by Article 1, Section 27 of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The industrialization of many parts of Pennsylvania due to natural gas extraction, processing and transportation is making its way into Luzerne County.

- In Hazleton, the dumping of potentially radioactive drill cuttings from natural gas wells has been approved by the DEP.

- Adjacent to the Dallas School District Campus, there are natural gas pipelines and natural gas metering stations.

- At the border of Luzerne and Wyoming Counties, the Chapin Natural Gas Dehydration Station has had eight incidents requiring emergency response since it was opened in 2012.

- In Lake Township, a proposal to construct and operate a frack water treatment plant, which would require heavy truck traffic, is being opposed by local homeowners.

In the Back Mountain, Mountain Top, and Bear Creek, many more miles of major pipelines are being proposed bringing with them the need for compressor stations and other industrial processing facilities. Across Pennsylvania, state forest lands, which are a resource for the benefit of the people, are being leased for gas drilling.

It is anticipated that there will continue to be great expansion of the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania with many more drilling wells, industrial processing facilities and miles of pipelines
.
Is this what residents want for their communities and their state?

One has to wonder if any of our elected officials are considering the warning of Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Castille:
“By any responsible account, the exploitation of the Marcellus Shale Formation will produce a detrimental effect on the environment, on the people, their children, and the future generations, and potentially on the public purse, perhaps rivaling the environmental effects of coal extraction.

Frack Wastewater Facility Planned For
Lake Township, about 1 Mile from Harvey's Lake

- Team GDAC


Dear Friends & Neighbors-
We all need to take a moment and decide what is really important in our lives. Are we going to allow our children’s and grandchildren’s water supplies and environment to be damaged?

Are we going to let others control their futures?

It is time for US to take action!

Luzerne County is about to be hit AGAIN by the negative effects of the Gas Drillers:

An application for a permit for a Frack Water Treatment Plant has been submitted to the County for Meeker Outlet Road (the old Harveys Lake Gun Club property), in Lake Township. As a result, three or more important and irreplaceable water sources will be at risk.

Frack water is known to contain toxic, carcinogenic chemicals, and the application specifies that there will be 30 or more 20,000 gallon storage tanks installed at the site, as well as radioactive contaminant testing areas. In addition, anticipate a future with non-stop frack water trucks traveling 24/7, back and forth over our back roads.

Harveys Lake, Harveys Creek and other important tributaries run near this location. Recent news headlines reflect recent explosions and toxic spills that render affected areas uninhabitable and the water unusable. (West Virginia is still reeling from a recent spill that rendered their water useless!)
Is this what we want for Pennsylvania?

Is this what we want for our homes and the future homes of our children and grandchildren?If you object to this facility being built in Lake Township, and/or you want to learn more, plan to join members of the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition (GDAC) at the following events:

Luzerne County Council Session

Policy Statement "Letter to Editor," Timesleader, concerning
Center For Sustainable Shale Developement (CSSD)


"Partnership Between Drillers,
Enviornmentalists a GIMMICK"

- by Dr Thomas Jiunta, GDAC spokesperson


Published: April 30. 2013 12:01AM
Last Modified: April 30. 2013 11:00PM

The PittsburgH-based Center for Sustainable Shale Development (CSSD), is a public relations tool, created by the biggest oil and gas companies in the world. Its goal is to help sugarcoat a method of natural gas extraction called fracking. Public perception of this technique has suffered because of the many problems caused.

To call the CSSD a partnership between environmental groups and the shale gas and oil industry is misleading at best and a convenient lie at worst.
The Clean Air Task Force, one of the “environmental partners” in this coalition, was formed mainly to help reduce carbon emissions from coal-fired electric plants. Their effort is hypocritical and misguided in light of recent scientific studies indicating that methane, (natural gas), is a much more potent greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide. Sierra Club Campaign Director Deb Nardone says, “If we have any chance of avoiding climate disaster, the majority of natural gas must stay in the ground.”

Real environmental groups, along with the unwilling community stakeholders lives that have been negatively impacted by this gas drilling, seriously question whether this partnership will create any meaningful change from the industry. In fact, such a front group may cause more harm in the long run by trying to give the public a false sense of security that fracking can actually be done safely. This may be why the Sierra Club called this coalition “akin to slapping a Band-Aid on a gaping wound.

The Environmental Defense Fund, another coalition member does not consider the partnership a substitute for strong regulations. Unfortunately, the regulations governing shale gas development are seriously wanting in Pennsylvania. The 80 oil and gas well DEP inspectors we currently have is woefully understaffed to inspect the over 83,000 active oil and gas wells in Pennsylvania.

The group established 15 voluntary “performance standards” which many environmentalists say are set too low, range from well casings to waste disposal practices. Many of the “standards” are vague and misleading such as agreeing to disclose the chemicals used in fracking, unless the industry decides this is proprietary, in which case they do not have to disclose this to the public. CSSD members agree to follow best industry practices in casing design and installation. However, over the past three years these practices have resulted in an unacceptable leakage rate of 6-7 percent on new casings. Science and common sense show this failure rate only increases with time. Voluntary compliance with no sanctions, fines, or permit revocation should they fail to live up to their promises, is window dressing. CSSD has absolutely no power or authority to enforce compliance. The fox guarding the hen house is more of the same, as currently the DEP depends too much on voluntary reporting of problems at well sites.

It is disingenuous of CSSD to use the word “sustainable” in the name. Fossil fuels are not sustainable. Technologies that promote sustainable energy include renewable energy sources, such as solar power, wind energy, hydroelectricity, and technologies designed to improve efficiency.

We should not allow this advertising campaign to front an industry that should take a back seat to true sustainable and clean energy that modern societies deserve and can realistically deliver the energy we need and help us pass on a cleaner planet for future generations.

GDAC Members Join "Shale Gas Outrage"
Philadelphia, PA - 9.20.12
GDAC's President, Dr (MD) Alfonso Rodriguez's
Statement On PA Act 13's "Medical Gag Rule"

" I ask you to take pause and question the new section of Pennsylvania Law referred to as ACT 13 of 2012.

This law stipulates that physicians must sign a confidentiality agreement promising that they will use any information gleaned about natural gas-related chemicals only for a patient’s treatment. Natural gas companies are now required to tell the physician about the substances the patient might have come in contact with, but only after a confidentiality agreement is signed.

This directive violates my First Amendment Right of freedom of speech.

This directive also violates my Fourteenth Amendment Right, which is to practice my profession.
ACT 13 interferes with my ability to provide for the competent care of my patients.

I am required to secure information necessary to provide competent treatment of my patients and the law forces me to waive my First Amendment Rights to fulfill this duty. Due to this law I am not given the opportunity to discuss, with OTHER PHYSICIANS, the specific substances that may have contributed to a patient’s illness. Presumably, the sharing of information amongst medical doctors can be a vital component of the decision-making process that leads to a diagnosis and subsequent treatment schedule for the patient.

This law requires physicians to operate within an environment of professional isolation. This law does interfere with a physician’s ability to learn about the associated health problems within an environment of shared information.This law does not specify how broadly the confidentiality agreement reaches. It doesn’t provide any safe guards for my patients or other health professionals.

The physician is also prohibited from sharing potential damaging health consequences of chemical contact to other family members, gas drilling workers or health care workers. The potential for others to have exposure may exist. Negative health consequences could be prevented with the sharing of this information.

This goes against what we as physicians are taught to prevent- health exposure to potential toxins. The State Secretary of Health has released a statement with his interpretation of the law, but his assurances are not enough to protect physicians or patients in court.One of the most important problems with this “gag order” is its exclusion of medical research involving chemicals’ effects on populations that reside around oil and gas drilling.

It prevents any type of registry or study to be done in Pa. for workers or victims.
Is this being done for the patients’ welfare?? No!!

The HIPAA or Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act of 1996 was enacted to computerize medical records, which led to concerns over privacy. Multiple safeguards are in place for all health care professionals regarding the privacy of their patients. These safeguards have been put in place and are enforced by the Federal Government. Why do we need rules by our state to override the HIPAA rules already in place? Again, is this for the patients’ welfare?

The Hippocratic oath also binds physicians. Some of the tenets it states are:

That I will seek the counsel of others when they are more expert so as to fulfill my obligation to those who are entrusted to my care; That I will not withdraw from my patients in their time of need; That whatsoever I shall see or hear of the lives of my patients that is not fitting to be spoken, I will keep in confidence; That I will be an advocate for patients in need and strive for justice in the care of the sick.

I am bound by HIPAA as a health care professional, by the Hippocratic Oath as a physician, and by the precautionary principle “caution in advance” as an individual.

So, to those who enact our laws, please live by the standard practiced by the medical profession,
PRIMUM NON NOCERE, “FIRST DO NO HARM”.

Pennsylvania has a history of environmental threats in the form of logging and coal mining. As a Pennsylvanian I am dumbfounded by the ability of yet another reckless exploitative industry to once again place the health and well being of our communities in jeopardy.

It is the duty and responsibility of our elected officials to uphold our constitution and provide for the safety and health of the communities and voters that elected them. This is necessary, not only for our health, but for the health of generations to come."

Washington, D.C—Today citizens from affected communities, together with environmental organizations and community groups, announced a call to action to demand an end to putting oil and gas drilling profits ahead of public health, clean water and air and the safety of our communities.  This event will be the largest of its kind and will take place in on the West Lawn of the United States Capitol, Washington, DC from 10am to 2pm on July 28, 2012.
 
Labeled “Stop the Frack Attack,” the rally will bring thousands to the nation’s capitol to demand greater government responsibility and corporate accountability for harm that existing oil and gas development causes.
 
Community groups and organizations from Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New York, Maryland, Texas, Wyoming, Ohio, Colorado, New Jersey, New Mexico, Idaho, Virginia and North Dakota have signed on in support of the event.  For more information and list of endorsing organizations and members of the citizen-based advisory council, please visit www.stopthefrackattack.org
 
In support of this National Day of Action, concerned citizens from across the country issued the below statements.
 
“The President and Congress need to hear the truth about the destruction of irresponsible fossil fuel extraction directly from drilling communities,” said Kari Matsko, an Ohio member of the National Day of Action advisory council. “Gas isn’t clean and drillers always put their profits ahead of the health of American families. This has to stop, and we expect our elected officials to make sure it does.”
 
“We have found that we cannot rely on our local, tribal and state officials to prevent pollution of our air and water, and our health,” said Theodora Bird Bear, a member of the Dakota Resource Council from North Dakota’s Fort Berthold Reservation. “They tell us there will be no impacts, but we can see the impacts and we know they are real. We are asking policy makers in Washington, DC to help us protect and honor our connections to the earth.”
 
“Now is the time for all of us to unite and demand that the nation take action to move toward a clean energy future,” said Calvin Tillman, former Mayor of DISH, Texas and another advisory council member. “Drilling that harms our health, water, and air isn’t acceptable. Americans deserve better, and we expect to get it.”
 
“Dirty drilling isn’t a state or regional problem – it’s a national problem,” said John Fenton, a rancher from Wyoming who is also a member of the advisory council. “It’s time for the White House and Congress to stop buying the industry line and start paying attention to the real devastation this industry has caused our communities, air and water.”

The End of Local Self Government?
PA House Bill (HB 1950)
PA Senate Bill (SB 1100)
Eliminate Local Zoning
& ALL Local Regulation
of Natural Gas & Oil Drilling

The Luzerne County-based group, Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition (GDAC), along with several other Pennsylvania community groups, are collectively voicing their opposition to Pennsylvania House Bill 1950 in a jointly signed letter to government leaders.

HB 1950 is a bill, passed on November 2nd
by the House Finance Committee that threatens to strip local governments of the ability to create ordinances that fit the desires and needs of their residents.

In the jointly signed letter, entitled “Who Is Stripping What Was Left of Community Rights from PA Municipalities?”, community groups point to Governor Thomas Corbett and some Pennsylvania State representatives as the responsible parties.

"We clearly need a separation of corporation and state. What began as a drilling problem is now a democracy problem," said Wanda Guthrie, a Westmoreland County resident. "Many municipalities are working diligently and thoughtfully to draft ordinances that will protect their communities through careful zoning and municipal codes. Each PA community is unique - a state-mandated one-size-fits-all solution is not the answer."

Our state government should honor and protect Pennsylvanian’s rights to decide acceptable risk for their own community, rather than showing favoritism to an industry. This is not just any industry- it's heavy industry that comes with environmental and health consequences."

In response to residents’ growing concern about drilling, an increasing number of municipalities are either banning this heavy industry within their boundaries or enacting community rights ordinances. For a complete list of bans and moratoria go to: http://shalethreat.org/styled/bansmoratoria.html.

In addition to stripping local governments of the right to create ordinance limiting oil and gas activity, it also outlines a drilling impact fee. Locally, Luzerne County residents may not see any of its share of a severance tax, even though it has recently become a hotbed of Marcellus Shale activity, including metering stations, pipelines and compressor stations. HB 1950 lays out a complicated formula for municipalities that do not have wells.

GDAC is calling on residents and local government officials to contact state legislators and the governor to oppose HB 1950, which will soon be moving to the floor of the House.

As stated in Article I, section 27 of the PA Constitution: the people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment. Pennsylvania government has a trusteeship responsibility to protect that environment on behalf of future generations.

An Open Letter to Concerned Back Mountain Residents:

Proposed Local Zoning Changes
Will Allow Industrial Activities in
Agricultural & Residential Areas


Dear Concerned Residents-

As an avowed & unrepentant minimalist, I continually try to see the forest for the trees...

Dallas Township, Kingston Township & other local municipalities are proposing revisions to their zoning ordinances to deal with the ongoing invasion of gas drilling corporate interests into our rural communities. Unfortunately the approach being considered will have an adverse and detrimental effect on our way of life.

They have acceded to the dictates & recommendations provided by the Pennsylvania State Association of Township Supervisors (PSATS.) This is a non-profit association that purports to advise our elected township supervisors on matters of local governance.

This would be all to the good if not for the fact that PSATS has been infiltrated & totally influenced by the gas industry corporate interests. Main sponsors for the PSATS conference in Hersey PA on April 17–20th are Chesapeake Energy, Range Resources, Talisman Energy, Marcellus Shale Coalition & Pennoni Engineering.

Don’t be deceived by industry created media releases that your local elected officials are trying to protect you.

Concerned residents are encouraged to attend the Dallas Zoning Board
Hearing on Thursday April 28th & the VOTE on Tuesday May 3rd
at Dallas Twp. Municipal Bldg, 601 Tunkhannock Highway, Dallas, PA 18612

You are being used as dupes in a cruel hoax. By the dictates of the revised ordinances township supervisors will be required to issue conditional permits for gas drilling, hydraulic fracturing, gas transmission pipelines, compressor stations, metering stations, gas processing plants & all associated equipment & operations in Districts zoned as Agricultural & Manufacturing.

Conservation Districts are exempted from these conditional uses, however only a small portion of land is zoned as such. The Kingston Township ordinance takes it even a step further by allowing conditional use for horizontal drilling & hydraulic fracturing in Districts zoned as Residential.

Passage of any of these ordinances will open the flood gates to the industrialization of your rural & peaceful communities. The conditions imposed on the gas industry by these ordinances are simply not stringent enough to protect your interests & are in fact the same conditions that the industry has already imposed on themselves.

The real purpose of these ordinances is to take the pressure off of your elected officials & negate their oaths to protect the health, safety & welfare of their constituents. Township Solicitors & Planning Consultants are in favor of enacting these ordinances because it would keep them in compliance with the PA Municipal Planning Code which parrots the dictates of the PA 1984 Oil/Gas Act & will avoid involving them in conflict.

Dallas Township’s current zoning ordinance requires that a special exception is required for industrial activities such as natural gas compressors & metering stations. This requires that an application be subjected to a review by a Zoning Hearing Board & could be denied if the Board determined that the proposed use was incompatible with the zoning district.

As evidenced by the huge turnout at the Dallas Middle School for recent hearings held to discuss the application by Chief Gathering to build a compressor station/metering station & later a metering station near the Dallas School Complex, there is considerable public support to restrict these activities.

Under the proposed ordinances the Township Zoning Officer would be required to issue a permit under a conditional use. There would be no hearing where residents could express their displeasure. Is there any question why the industry is intent on the enactment of these ordinances? Decisions by local municipalities have the potential of decreasing the industry’s already bloated bottom lines & resistance by local residents trying to protect their way of life is causing them a degree of consternation.

Now is the time for you to take a strong stand against the destruction of your communities. Attend the hearings on these ordinances in your municipalities & demand that your elected officials not sell out your constitutionally guaranteed rights to clean air & water.

Statement to Dallas Area School Parents on the Status
of the Chief Natural Gas Compressor Station Application

Dear Concerned Parents:

Recent articles concerning the proposed Compressor Station in Dallas Township indicated that Chief is allegedly
investigating relocating the Compressor Station to another site, instead of next to the Dallas schools.

Because Chief had intended to file an amended application to Dallas Township even before this recent revelation
Zoning Officer Len Kozick said there will no Zoning Hearings scheduled until an amended application is received.

If, after considering another site, Chief decides to continue efforts to locate the Compressor Station next to the
schools, there will a Public Notice period of two weeks and a re-scheduled Zoning Hearing.

GDAC will closely monitor this issue and will publicize information as soon as it is available.
Two items that are currently under consideration by the Compressor Station Committee:

1) GDAC does not take the position that as long as it’s not in my backyard, then it’s ok. If the neighbors around
the proposed new site ask for assistance, we will consider how we might be helpful.

2) In the article in the CV on Monday about the Compressor Station tour, Chief’s Steve Hamilton mentioned that it
wasn’t the station he would be concerned about – it would be the pipeline the gas will go into. Ted Wurfel agreed.

Senator Baker is currently sponsoring a Gas Pipeline Safety Bill – GDAC is in the process of proposing some key
modifications to this bill that would improve pipeline safety even further. Everyone who is concerned about the
safety of the pipelines in front of the Dallas Schools should get involved in this effort.

Thank you,

GDAC Compressor Committee

Dallas Schools Parents Concerned about Compressor Station

Parents & taxpayers in Dallas Township concerned about Gas Compressor Station
near Fairground Road, approximately 1,300 feet from Dallas Schools complex.

Natural Gas Compressor Stations are where the gathering lines bring the gas from the wells to be "cleaned" for market. It will be there as long as drilling occurs in Northeast Pennsylvania. It removes all the moisture (gas leaves the well in liquid form) and all the contaminants (uranium, NORM, chemicals, heavy metals) and is where all the gas is sent to the transportation line or trucks to market.

Parents are concerned that a Compressor Station is major industry and emits high levels of pollution (air, noise, potential spills from waste being transported, truck traffic). They are also concerned about a compressor station’s high potential for explosions.

Concerned residents are encouraged to attend the Dallas Twp. Zoning Meeting-
Dallas Twp. Municipal Bldg, on Wednesday, Februrary 9th at 7 PM.

Parent Kim Jacobs states, ""It just makes no sense that anyone would even consider constructing a compressor system so close to a school complex. i hope the people in charge of approving or rejecting this have done suitable research and are weighing in on all of the negative aspects and potential problems associated with compressor stations. We all need to put the best interest of the Dallas students and residents in the surrounding area first."

Students themselves, are concerned, too. Dallas High School senior Demetra Szatkowski states, “I am concerned not only for myself and my siblings, but for all the people in the Dallas School District. It is shocking that the majority of people in this area do not know about this, and I certainly hope that the people entrusted to protect us will not allow us to be put at risk. Harming children for a profit makes absolutely no sense.
Dallas residents in cooperation with the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition have organized and have created fliers and a video opposing the compressor station available at www.gdacoalition.org. A Facebook page - SOS - (Save Our School) has also been started and a petition opposing the compressor station as currentlt planned is in the works.

The Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition includes Luzerne County citizens concerned about the potential problems gas drilling by horizontal fracturing (“fracking”) will bring to this populated and developed area. Concerns include polluted water supplies, toxic waste, radioactive mud, dirty air, depleted water habitat, noise, eminent domain, loss of farmland, loss of tourism, higher crime rates, more traffic, more accidents, lowered property values, and increased taxes. The goal is to protect our communities and environment from exploitative gas drilling.
