Drilling for natural gas in the Marcellus Shale continues to garner attention in our region and across Pennsylvania. PennFuture, Clean Water Action, PennEnvironment, Pennsylvania Sierra Club, Responsible Drilling Alliance and EARTHWORKS invite you to a strategy session to discuss the avenues and opportunities that are ripe for action in 2011.
At these sessions, you will:
- Hear from top environmental advocates about the political landscape in 2011;
- Review the legislative avenues for action at the state and federal levels;
- Learn more about drilling on state lands, the drilling tax, setbacks from water resources, bonding, enforcement and other issues confronting Pennsylvania;
- Learn more about wastewater treatment, compressor stations, municipal zoning authority, and the issues facing your local community; and
- Find out how to be involved in local citizen monitoring and visual assessment efforts.
An agenda is coming soon - check back for details.
The events are free, but preregistration is required.
