Our friend John Zaktansky, the Middle Susquehanna River Keeper, published the above named article October 9, 2020. It is an informative article that focuses on the lower water table from this summer’s drought. He does not address the possible effects of water withdrawals from Gas companies (fracking) but may do such an article in the future. You can find the article here or search for it under the blogs.

At a recent meeting of the Officer’s and Director’s, it was decided to cancel all Chapter meetings indefinitely. This was not an easy decision to make and there was a lengthy discussion before the decision was made and voted on.
There were many factors that went into our decision and it was ultimately the safety of everyone that made the decision easier. Even with safety precautions in place like wearing a mask and social distancing, COVID cases have increased in our area.
We are sorry for this and will continually review the COVID conditions and make appropriate decisions affecting our Chapter. Everyone’s safety is or priority.

In November 2017, Inflection Energy had a well pad off Yeagle Road in Eldred Township, Lycoming County. Approximately 63,000 gallons of treated brine water escaped onto the ground and some going into a tributary of Loyalsock Creek. Earlier this year, Inflection Energy entered into a plea deal with the AP attorney General’s Office and we received this donation as part of that plea agreement.
