1. Get involved with coalition of Food & Water Watch, Concerned Citizens Against the Pipeline and Berks Gas Truth.  

2. Attend Public Meetings:

  • Food & Water Watch is hosting a presentation on November 19th, at 7:00 p.m. in Bath that will include information on landowners rights and environmental impacts.  Most likely, you got that hand out last night, but if not, I attached it.  For many of you, this might be the first time you are hearing about Fracking, since we really don't have this is the LV. 
  • If you don't know how natural gas extraction is connected to pipelines and the massive impacts-- both human and environmental-- that happens at every end of development, then you need to attend the public showing of TRIPLE DIVIDE on November 20th, at 7:00 p.m. at Northampton Community College. 

3. Organize in your own neighborhood

  • C​irculate our petition and raise awareness in your community. You can print the resources on the website
  • Call on your municipal leaders by finding out when their meetings are, asking for time to speak and presenting a document sample resolution (28 KB) . Ask those who signed the petition to speak up at meetings as well and back the resolution. 
  • Moore Township and Reigelsville have already been successful in passing resolutions but we need everyone along the route to follow.
  • Put signs on your lawn.   

4. Write letters to the editor

5. Say NO to surveyors who arrive on your property. 

6. E-register your comments with FERC – the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission – Docket number PF15-1.  There is pdf a handout attached here (156 KB)  that can explain the e-register process as well as the steps to follow in the future to participate in the application process.

The most imporant thing for you to do is to connect with other people in this movement.  We are engaged in an uphill but not impossible battle to not only move this pipeline out of our backyard but make sure it doesn't get moved to someone else's back yard.  Educate yourself and your neighbors and join Food & Water Watch on November 19th in Bath.
