Update: DEP Has Responded to Our Letter

Earlier this spring, Executive Director Patrick Grenter joined other environmental attorneys from around Pennsylvania in condemning recent comments by a high-ranking Range Resources executive regarding that company’s apparent preference to locate shale gas wells away from big homes. Groups also sent a letter to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection requesting that the state investigate Range Resource’s operations in light of their executive’s comments. 

We recently received the letters below from the Department informing us of their intention to investigate Range's admissions and also investigate environmental justice issues more broadly. We look forward to collaborating in this process and will keep our members up to date accordingly.
