Oppose Fossil Fuel Infrastructure Expansion in the Delaware River Watershed

Expanding fossil fuel infrastructure in the Delaware River Watershed poses dangerous risks for the environment, wildlife, and public health.

New fossil fuel infrastructure, such as gas pipelines and fracking pads, raises significant environmental and safety concerns, including the release of pollutants into ground and surface waters, threatening this unique and vital resource.

Let's be clear. In the face of climate disruption, investing in new carbon infrastructure in Pennsylvania is wrong-headed.

We should be advancing policies that increase clean energy, like wind and solar, not promoting policies that further increase carbon emissions. Tell your legislator that you oppose the expansion of fossil fuel infrastructure in the Delaware River Watershed.

In Pennsylvania, the Delaware River Watershed includes expansive forests, a rich variety of fish and wildlife species, and hundreds of unique outdoor recreational opportunities. In addition to its significant historical and economic value, more than 15 million people depend on it for clean drinking water.

Energy infrastructure development must take into account climate impacts and must be designed to avoid risks to public health and to the fragile ecosystems of the watershed. Please tell your legislator that you oppose further development of fossil fuel infrastructure in the Delaware River Watershed.
