MyVeronaNJ-DrillingIf you think drilling for natural gas is something that only happens off the coasts of Louisiana and Texas, think again: Drillers currently have seven applications to work in the Upper Delaware River watershed, according to NewJerseyNewsroom.com, and they have leased some 200,000 acres of land.

On Tuesday, February 9, at 7 p.m., the West Essex Park Conservancy and the Essex Sierra Club Singles Group will present a talk on the potential impact of this drilling on our drinking water, “Will We Sacrifice Our Water for Gas?”. The speaker will be Tracy Carluccio, deputy director of Delaware Riverkeeper Network. She will also discuss the so-called Halliburton Loophole, which exempts gas drilling from the Safe Drinking Water Act and other federal environmental laws.

The talk will be held at the Essex County Environmental Center. Tickets are $7 per adult and free for WEPC/Sierra Club members. For information, call 973-228-8776. [mappress]
