Sample Letter

The expansion of gas drilling in the Susquehanna River Basin and water withdrawals necessary for this activity potentially threaten the health of the Susquehanna River. I urge you to support the Susquehanna River Basin Commission (SRBC) instituting a 2013 comprehensive environmental study ofhow gas drilling is impacting the Susquehanna River and its tributaries.

The Susquehanna River is our lifeblood. Please don’t sell the river short.
