Governor Cuomo: Keep the Delaware Frack Free!

Governor Cuomo: Keep the Delaware Frack Free!

Catskill Mountainkeeper is calling on Governor Cuomo to uphold the Delaware River Basin Commission's (DRBC) proposed fracking ban and expand it to ensure that fracking's dangerous, toxic fracking wastewater is kept away from the Delaware River - a drinking water source to nearly 17 million Americans, and one of our country's Wild and Scenic Rivers.

Governor Cuomo needs to hear from you. Tell him: NO fracking and NO wastewater in the pristine Delaware River Basin. We cannot endanger the health of local communities, the 17 million people who rely on the river for drinking water, or the river itself just so greedy gas companies can make a profit.

Governor Cuomo: Keep the Delaware River Frack Free

The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) has proposed rules that will ban fracking but still allow for fracking activities (like storing, transporting and treating poisonous fracking wastewater) within the Delaware River Basin. The Delaware is one of our nation's Wild and Scenic Rivers and a drinking water source for 17 million people. As a voting member of the DRBC, Governor Cuomo must stand up for the basin and vote for a complete ban.

Dear Governor Cuomo,

As a supporter of Catskill Mountainkeeper, and a concerned citizen, I'm calling on Governor Cuomo stand with Governor Murphy and support a complete and total ban on fracking and all its activities (including transportation, treatment, and storage) within the Delaware River Basin. Every day the pile of evidence of fracking's harms grows and we can't roll the dice with the drinking water for more than 17 million people.

I supported the Governor's work to ban fracking in New York State and truly appreciate that bold move. I now call on Governor Cuomo to stand up for the entire Delaware River Basin and support a complete fracking ban.
