DEWATERING is going to be the biggest problem we have faced so far. With summer coming and levels dropping , KEEP YOUR EYES n EARS OPEN and.....................MAKE THE PHONE CALL!!!!! or the MF'Rs WILL suck it dry , they don't care and they didn't figure on a drought so it's up to US. REPORT THEM!...........REPORT THEM!!........REPORT THEM!!!

Agree with Troutbert.

If you suspect something damaging is going on, get details, and give them out! Otherwise its just a meaningless rant.

How many trucks? How long were they there? What stream, and what part of the stream did it come from? What was the flow rate at the time? How much did the flow drop?

Most of the permits state how much water the company is allowed to take, and what the flows have to be in order for them to do it. If they're violating that (and I'm sure they do), then give details so it can be investigated and stopped. If they're not violating it, but the results are damaging nonetheless, we can document that and push for tighter restrictions. If everything is proper, and the stream not damaged, then your just ranting and there's no substance to it.

I was under the impression that all ATW is off limits , but if they can sneak they will , if a driver is told to do something not "kosher" they will do it 'cause it's their job and they have mouths to feed , can't lay the blame on them , it's the guy who gave the order we want. Put his azz in JAIL.

Wyoming County Examiner,Nicholson residents vent.Land onwer wants to install a 510,000 gallon a day water withdrawal site,This is # 2 on the north branch branch of the tunkhannock creek and a thrid at the the combining of the north and south branchs.,The thrid is the biggest from what you can see from the road.510.000 is about is about 10% of the water that flows by the property.THIS IS X3 or more.I have fished this area my hole life and have seen water levls be pretty low at times and what about freash water to the bay.I can see 1,530,000 gallons of water a day disapearing for ever.

THIS hits close to home. A few years back i was offered a proposal by a local Dairy to take water from a spring on my property to bottle it into spring water the PFBC denied me. It is on ATW and i was told ATW's are off limits for this kind of thing now i hear this. It's not ok for me to take drinking water , but it's ok for the drillers to poison it?

you got it osprey! same thing about camping in state forest land. not allowed to put your tent within so many feet of a stream, road, stump, rock, etc. have to have permit to stay more than one nite. which is all fine and good, I have no problem with that. but then they will issue a permit to a drilling company and the area you wanted to pitch a tent in for a nite will be completely destroyed to put in a well pad. yep, glad I took the time to keep away from the stream, reduce my impact, take out any litter, and basically leave no trace. I left the area in great condition to be bulldozed!!LOL!
just sayin...
