DELAWARE RIVERKEEPER SPEAKS ABOUT GAS DRILLING

Maya van Rossum

"THIS IS ABOUT THE CHILDREN"
"THIS IS ABOUT OUR FUTURE"
"THIS IS ABOUT US ALL"



"THIS CAN'T BE ABOUT PUTTING MONEY
IN THE BACK POCKETS OF THE DRILLERS"

Maya van Rossum is the Delaware Riverkeeper and leads the Delaware Riverkeeper Network (DRN). She heads a team of dedicated staff and volunteers who monitor the River and all of its tributaries for threats and challenges, and who then take this information and advocate, educate and litigate for protection, restoration and change. The Delaware Riverkeeper and Delaware Riverkeeper Network work to restore natural balance in the River and watershed where it has been lost, and to ensure preservation where it still exists.
In 1994, Maya came to work at the DRN. By 1996, she had been appointed the Delaware Riverkeeper. She testifies before state and national governing bodies, organizes concerned citizens, and keeps a close watch on the Delaware. Often, she is out on the water herself, keeping an eye on the River and looking for signs of pollution and illegal activity.

"There are alternative sources of energy
that don't require shale drilling or hydrofracking.
There is no alternative for water."

DRN Workshop on DRBC Draft Regulations

"Gas Drilling is probably one of the biggest threats
to ever face our river and our region
and it is barreling down upon us
unless we take some stong action today."
