The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment. Pennsylvania's public natural resources are the common property of all the people, including generations yet to come. As trustee of these resources, the Commonwealth shall conserve and maintain them for the benefit of all the people.

This is an informal community web site for residents of Lawrence and Mercer County who are concerned about hydraulic fracturing of Marcellus and Utica Shale in our area. It is by no means comprehensive, but contains articles, resources and dates that members of our community want to share with others. It can serve as a reference for people who would like more information about what is happening locally with fracking and what we can do to try to ensure that it will be done safely--or to get it banned altogether.
