Low Water Levels Cuts Off Marcellus Water Withdrawals

Low flow causes suspension of water-take from river, Pine Creek

July 13, 2011
From staff reports , The Express

LOCK HAVEN - The ongoing lack of rain in Clinton and some surrounding counties is causing the water level of area streams to fall, affecting some natural gas companies needing water to fracture their Marcellus Shale wells to produce gas.

The Susquehanna River Basin Commission has confirmed that pumping from the West Branch of the Susquehanna River in Clinton County and from Pine Creek bordering both Clinton and Lycoming counties has been temporarily suspended.

Affected permits to take water from Pine Creek include that of Pennsylvania General Energy Co. at a coffer dam under construction in Watson Township, Lycoming County, and for Ultra Resources Inc. in Pike Township, Potter County. More...

If we loose our fresh water, we loose everything. We are on that path right now.

What happened to the industry's plan to re-cycle or re-use water?

I thought the liars in the industry told us they are re-using "most" of the produced water over and over again, shipping it from one well to another and they need very little "new" water?

If that is the case, let them buy bottled water!

Hey, they expect us to operate out of bottled water!

I'm sure all our businesses who sell bottled water can use the business!

Since so many people depend on Pine Creek for fishing, canoeing and kayaking, they shouldn't be allowed to take one drop of water, even after a rainstorm!

They should think about that in the Emporium area... Water is so low and they just keep taking what they can... Water is no longer in the dams over flow for the residents of Emporium... I guess it doesn't matter if you have no fresh water to drink... Cindy

Thursday-- Rt 44 South just below Jersey Shore. Trucks all day drawing water from the Susquehanna River.

So much for "obeying the rules".
