Re: Dimock Supervisors under fire
It concerns some resident's of Dimock, who don't want to foot any legal bills. "My husband makes 14 dollars an hour and I raise three kids on that and I have to raise my taxes to pay for your crap," said one unidentified woman.
DIMOCK TWP. - Deep divisions among neighbors over the impact of Marcellus Shale drilling on this Susquehanna County community erupted Tuesday night
Cabot has denied that it caused the methane contamination, which it says occurs naturally in 80 percent of the water wells it has tested throughout Susquehanna County.
seems like the nieghbors dont agree, and as i recall a lot of them say the gas was in the wells in that area before cabot was there.doesnt look to good when there own nieghbors dont believe them about there wells?
cabot says 80% of the wells they test in that county have methane in them pre drilling? i would think that would be a good place for EPA/DEP to follow that up. might shed some light on whats truely going on in dimock ?
far as the supervisors, as a twp supervisor myself, i think they did the right thing not taking water from bing. i dont the the twp should get involved with that, just as there soliciter pointed out.
in my opinion the whole water from bing was nothing more than a dog and pony show from the anti's anyway, which is even better reason for the twp to steer clear of it.
while i cant say the supervisors did or didnt do anything wrong, because i was not there, i will say that supervisors can be in the same place at the same time and listen to peoples complaints,comments, thoughts etc, they just cant make decisions about twp business.
it doesnt sound like they did anything wrong, they seem confident they didnt and they no the laws, sis i believe they will be cleared......time will tell.
Your never to old to learn something stupid
