Inquirer Editorial: Is our water safe?
"Growing doubts about the safety of high-pressure drilling for natural gas should persuade the Delaware River Basin Commission to extend its drilling ban."
"There is growing evidence that the state's infrastructure cannot cleanse the polluted wastewater that is a byproduct of fracking."
"The gas industry disputes that Marcellus drilling is causing the problem. But concerns also have been raised about water-treatment plants' being unable to filter out radioactive materials from the drilling wastewater."
"It would be illogical for the DRBC to lift its moratorium before the results of the EPA study are known. There should also be a review of the impact in this watershed. The most sensible course for the 15 million people who depend on clean drinking water in the Delaware River watershed is for the DRBC to extend its ban on drilling for now."
