Fracking at Drinking Water Source for 80,000 in Pa. Raises Alarms

CNX Gas has drilled more than a dozen hydraulic fracturing wills from a peninsula in the Beaver Run Reservoir -- the source of drinking water for some 80,000 Pennsylvanians.

"Besides being visible by air, records obtained by SolveClimate News in response to requests reveal that the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County, the local water utility, had leased the watershed in 1999 precisely to cash in on drilling opportunities."
