Landowners Threaten Legal Action Against Delaware River Basin Commission
July 12, 2013
The Corning Leader reports that, in response to Governor Corbett’s recent letter to the Delaware River Basin Commission, a 1,300 member landowner group has threatened to sue the DRBC. The Northern Wayne Property Owners Alliance sent a letter to the executive director of the DRBC threatening a lawsuit unless the Commission schedules a vote on regulations that would allow drilling to begin. The DRBC imposed a moratorium on Marcellus Shale drilling in 2010.
