Proposed Construction of Shale Gas Drilling Wastewater Treatment Plant on Coudersport's Western Border

Good afternoon,

It has come to the attention of some Coudersport residents that there is a proposal for a fracking wastewater treatment plant on Coudersport's wester border on the table, and scheduled for discussion tomorrow. There does not seem to be widespread awareness of this proposal, therefore I am sending this information on behalf of Laurie Barr and the group to see if you would mind posting it to Solomon's Word to help raise awareness.

Thank you.
Best regards,
Georgina Hricak


"A company is proposing construction of shale gas drilling wastewater treatment plant on Coudersport’s western border." according to the Shale Gas Roundup newsletter. which states “Discussions are being held between members of the Coudersport Area Municipal Authority and two businesses, Epiphany Environmental and JKLM Energy.”

Newsletter link: http://www.pottercountypa.net/post/_docs/2016_RoundupDecember.pdf

According to the Pennsylvania Department of State (online database), the fledgling company, “Epiphany Water Systems” is owned by Thomas Joseph and began operating in Dec. 2015. However their own website, youtube videos & other sources indicate the company has been operating at least as far back as 2012 when Consol Energy invested $500,000 in Epiphany.

State Department link: https://www.corporations.pa.gov/search/corpsearch

A video on youtube posted by Tom Joseph explains Epiphany's method of wastewater treatment which utilizes solar power, "distillation" and "mist evaporation." Video link: https://youtu.be/F1duF1M589Y?t=1m18s



Someone told to me the decision whether or not to lease land next to the sewage treatment facility (near the Coudersport Gospel Tabernacle Church) to Epiphany Water Solutions is “in the hands of the Coudersport Area Municipal Authority (CAMA).”

According to The Endeavor News published back in November of 2016 "Discussions between members of the Coudersport Area Municipal Authority and two businesses, Epiphany Environmental and JKLM Energy, date back at "least five months. Few details have been made public."

(http://www.endeavornews.com/news/2016-11-05/Front_Page/Water_plant_proposed_in_Coudersport.html )

Nearly a year after discussions began, area residents continue to be left in the dark.

It's my guess that among the reasons "few details have been made public." is Epiphany's process may involve wastewater storage, distillation and evaporation of JKLM's Hydro-fracturing wastewater at a facility which is less than a mile upwind of the Coudersport Elementary School. We know this waste may include volatile organic compounds which are known carcinogens as well as soluble and insoluble radioactive compounds. Will the facility take any steps to isolate this prior to or during any evaporation and distillation processes?


It's my hope CAMA, Epiphany and JKLM will hold public informational meeting to clue-in the rest of us, with details of their wastewater treatment plant plans. And to allow residents a reasonable amount of time to review their plans, submit comments and have any environmental, health and safety related concerns raised and addressed before the deal is sealed.

I made a couple phone calls to try to learn more about this and when this could be decided and all I was able to come up with is this; a decision may be made soon.

The next Coudersport Area Municipal Authority meeting is scheduled for Monday June 26 at 6:30pm at the Sewer Plant on Toles Hollow Rd.

Epiphany Water Systems is the sister company is Epiphany Labs:

Update On Local Boy Scouts Trek To Philmont Ranch



On Sunday, June 25, our Boy Scout trek made it to the top of Baldy Mountain 12,441 feet in elevation. Today's ascent began in total darkness at 3:30 am from our trail camp and have climbed nearly 3,000 feet. We have been challenged by many obstacles along the way so far including a heavy thunderstorm, some altitude sickness, spar pole climbing and leading uncooperative burros along rocky terrain. With 7 days and 5 peaks yet to come there is a lot we are looking forward to.

Ryan Geer.

A crew of teenage Scouts and their leaders will be embarking on a life changing summer trek through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains at Philmont Scout Ranch in Cimarron, New Mexico. Philmont covers 214 square miles of vast wilderness with trails that climb from 6,500 feet to as high as 12,441 feet.

During their trek, Boy Scouts from Mt Jewett, Kane, Bradford and Port Allegany PA and Olean, NY led by Scoutmaster Tom Geer and other adult advisors from Troop 410 Mt Jewett, PA will hike more than 89 miles over 11 days. This will be Tom Geer’s 13th trip to New Mexico starting back in 1982. Mr. Geer led 7 treks with his troop in Louisiana during the 1980’s and this will be his 6th with the Mt Jewett Troop.

The group of Scouts and their advisors will carry everything they need to survive during the trek on their backs while hiking from camp to camp. They will participate in backcountry programs along the way including historic Burro Packing, obstacle courses, spar pole climbing, rifle and muzzle loader shooting, mine tours, blacksmithing and gold prospecting. The trek includes a conservation project where the Scouts will learn and participate in the upkeep of Philmont’s ecosystem. Along the trek, Scouts will endure tough challenges including backpacking in bear and mountain lion territory, steep climbs, and often-inclement weather.

“They may meet only one other group of Scouts on the trail in an entire day of hiking,” according to Backpacker Magazine. “Even in the most crowded destinations, each Scout group camps in isolation, out of sight and sound of all other groups.” The crew will make what amounts to a Scouting pilgrimage with their trip to Philmont. Philmont Scout Ranch is the Boy Scouts of America’s premier high adventure camp and the largest youth camp in the world serving nearly one million participants since 1938. Interviews are available from the local contact upon request. More information about Philmont can be found at www.philmontscoutranch.org.

HISTORY COMES ALIVE SERIES WITH TOM PITZ AS THOMAS JEFFERSON ON JUNE 30

On Friday, June 30 at 7 p.m., the hands of time will turn back 200 years as the History Comes Alive series continues at the Deane Center’s Coolidge Theatre at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.

The audience will enter the world of Thomas Jefferson. The stage will either become Swann’s Tavern in Albermarle County in Virginia or, if there are too many visitors from northern Pennsylvania and the southern tier of New York, the Court House in the nearby village of Charlottesville since it is spacious enough to accommodate a large crowd.

On June 30, 1817, Mr. Jefferson will address his visitors and reminisce about the attitudes that prevailed 41 years prior and the events that led up to the 1776 adoption of a document that he describes as “pregnant with the fate of our country.”

Following his remarks, Mr. Jefferson will hope his visitors from a very different society will have enough interest and curiosity about his perspective of those long past days, his relationships with other "Founding Fathers," his role as chief executive, and his current "hobby" of establishing a university in the upland country of Virginia to offer questions and commentary of their own.

Thomas Pitz of Orange, Virginia has been portraying Jefferson for 30 years. He does not memorize lines. Instead, this oral historian becomes Jefferson, the principal author of America's Declaration of Independence who also served as the third President of the United States from 1801 to 1809 and was a Founding Father of this country.

Pitz's love of history began when he was a third grader. His main interest is the American Revolutionary War era from the 1750s on.

A high school guidance counselor in Orange for 32 years, from 1973 to 2005, Pitz remembers when he first became Jefferson. “In 1987, I was in a summer stock theater production playing Jefferson. “I got a call from the Boar’s Head Inn in Charlottesville asking if I would portray Mr. Jefferson for a group of their guests. I’ve been Jefferson ever since.”

Born in Virginia in 1743, Jefferson was 83 when he died on July 4, 1826, in Monticello, the plantation home he designed when he was 26.

Pitz has researched him and his contemporaries and is well versed in Jefferson’s own writings – specifically his letters. “They give you a sense of the language he uses. It’s beyond the scope of history books.”

By sharing Jefferson's ideas, personality and contradictions, Pitz gives his audiences a sense of the man's remarkable intelligence. “Even today, Mr. Jefferson is the most referred to person I’ve ever seen because he was influential and yet controversial,” Pitz said.

“None of the Founding Fathers evokes a stronger feeling in people than Thomas Jefferson. They may love him or hate him, but few people can ignore him if they wish to understand America,” Pitz concluded.

Tickets are $15. For tickets, call 570-724-6220 or visit www.deanecenter.com.

New Design Guide features local places, projects that serve as regional models on how to enhance community character

Ed McMahon
A new edition of the PA Wilds Design Guide for Community Character Stewardship, a popular free tool for communities in the Pennsylvania Wilds, is now available for download, and a national expert on sustainable development called it and the work it relates to one of the best rural development effort in the nation.

Ed McMahon of the Urban Land Institute and a national expert on sustainable community design, says the effort to grow the place-based tourism industry in the Pennsylvania Wilds is "one of the single greatest rural, natural resource-based, economic development programs in the United States of America.”

He said the comments to a crowded room of more than 250 people from across the region who had gathered at the DuBois Country Club this spring to unveil the Second Edition of the Design Guide and celebrate other milestones in the Pennsylvania Wilds effort.

"People in the world that I work in… talk about this initiative all over the country, because it's about taking what's special and making it valuable,” McMahon said.

The Design Guide is a core program of the larger Wilds movement, which also includes regional marketing, growing and connecting unique place-based businesses, youth outreach, regional planning and inspiring stewardship of natural and community assets. Many local stakeholders from the public and private-sectors are involved in the Wilds work. State and federal partners are also at the table. PA Wilds Center, a regional nonprofit, is the coordinating entity of the landscape-level effort.

The nonprofit on Friday released the free download link to the Design Guide Second Edition, as well as a link to McMahon’s presentation.

“A lot of people have asked us for a link to his talk because they wanted to share it with their city or borough councils, local townships and other partners,” said PA Wilds Center Executive Director Ta Enos. “So many of our communities in rural PA are dealing with the same development issues. Ed has a way of inspiring people to action.”

A former TED Talk speaker, McMahon is well known for his passion and humor and his ability to use common sense and before and after photos to transcend political and other lines. He told the crowd in April:

“I am one of those people who think we spend way too much time in this country fighting about what we disagree on and not nearly enough time sitting down community by community and figuring out what we do agree about. And I tell you when you do do that -- you can reach consensus about place. Because most Americans care more about the place they live than the political party they belong to.”

He went on to say that communities have two choices, to shape development or to let development shape them. “There is no place in the world today that will stay special by accident,” he said.

McMahon helped inspire the original Design Guide, which rolled off the presses in 2007, just as the Wilds effort was starting to gain steam. It was a product of the PA Wilds Planning Team, a grassroots stakeholder group that includes the region’s 12 county governments and dozens of other nonprofit and economic development stakeholders from across the Wilds. The document provided tips and illustrations on how communities, developers, architects, business owners and others could be good stewards of their community character as they grew.

Several counties in the Pennsylvania Wilds amended their comprehensive plans to include the Design Guide, and other organizations voluntarily made its use a requirement for accessing mini grants and other similar types of programs. Over the last few years it has been used by a variety of partners to guide development projects of all types and sizes, from chains looking to do something less cookie cutter to communities looking to better reflect their history or connection to nearby natural assets.

The new Design Guide includes new chapters, is far more visual than its predecessor, and also highlights more local examples of its practices in action, said Clearfield County Planning Director Jodi Brennan, whose committee spearheaded the overhaul.

“What's the saying, a picture is worth a thousand words?” Brennan said. “These visuals are more inspiring than any words could do justice … They reflect not what's happening somewhere else USA but here in our own home towns. Folks will recognize places from their own communities in this Second Edition or those they have visited or travelled through.”

An award-winning resource unto its own, the Design Guide has proved seminal to the Wilds partnership being able to compete for additional resources for the region, including two rounds of signage mini grants, one round of design assistance grants, and most recently, $183,000 for a regional façade grant pilot program targeting Route 6 communities in the Wilds, all of which have or will leverage tens of thousands of dollars in private-sector investment toward strategic revitalization efforts.

“During the development of the 1st Edition I didn't dream of the possibilities that are now before us,” Brennan said. “The recent award of regional facade dollars for Route 6 Alliance was SO exciting and has opened the door for other communities to follow in their footsteps.”

Community leaders, business or property owners, architects, developers, government partners and others on the front lines of shaping growth in communities in the Wilds are encouraged to check out the new Design Guide and McMahon’s presentation.

The Design Guide Second Edition can be downloaded at: http://www.pawildscenter.org/community-character-stewardship/.

McMahon’s full presentation can be viewed at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wxfGz7EW9CM&feature=youtu.be

A new video promoting the Design Guide is also available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lYNLVsU2PA

The Pennsylvania Wilds includes the counties of Warren, McKean, Potter, Tioga, Lycoming, Clinton, Elk, Cameron, Forest, Clearfield, Clarion, Jefferson and northern Centre.
