Natural Gas Extraction Threatens Upper Delaware River NY and PA

America's Most Endangered Rivers™ Report: 2010 Edition

SOUTHAMPTON, NY, June 3, 2010 - American Rivers released its America's Most Endangered Rivers™ Report yesterday to spotlight the nation's ten most threatened rivers, a list the organization has been publishing since 1986.

#1 on their list this year is The Upper Delaware River, which provides drinking water for 17 million people across Pennsylvania and New York. This clean water source is being threatened by natural gas extraction activities in the Marcellus Shale, where chemicals injected into the ground create untreatable toxic wastewater.

American Rivers is urging the Delaware River Basin Commission to not issue permits that will allow gas drilling in this watershed until a thorough study of these critical impacts is completed. The Group is also calling on Congress to pass the "Fracturing Responsibility and Awareness of Chemicals Act of 2009" to help protect all rivers within the Marcellus Shale region.

Gas drilling was also the reason why the Monongahela River in western Pennsylvania was rated ninth on the list.

Four of the 10 rivers listed as the most endangered are due to either natural gas drilling activities or coal mining activities.
