No More CNX Operations Near Beaver Run
"By permitting the continued operations of CNX in such close proximity to the Beaver Run Reservoir, DEP is jeopardizing the clean drinking water for thousands of people. We cannot continue waiting for yet another violation by CNX that leads to the contamination of this critical water source for so many Pennsylvanians. We are requesting the Department utilize their broad authority to protect to the public health, safety and environment and suspend all permits for CNX’s operations at the Shaw Well Site."
On Feb. 28, 2019 Westmoreland Marcellus Citizen's Group, Mountain Watershed Assoc. and Protect PT hosted a public meeting to address the gas well incident at Beaver Run Reservoir. Representatives of PA DEP, gas company CNX, and the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County(MAWC) invited. PA DEP and CNX declined our invitation. MAWC agreed to come present their information and answer questions. See the information below to learn more.
