On New Year’s Day 2009, Norma Fiorentino’s drinking water well exploded in her backyard after methane had seeped into her groundwater.Tell Pennsylvania’s environmental regulators to stop problems like this by passing stronger environmental and safety regulations today.
Environmental officials are considering regulations that require gas companies to build stronger and safer wells, disclose the toxic chemicals used in the gas extraction process, and require the state to conduct more thorough inspections of these wells.

Tell our environmental officials that we must protect drinking water and keep dangerous methane out of Pennsylvania’s water supply.
