Fly fishing: Water Removal Plan Gets The Cold Shoulder
Fly fishing: Water removal plan gets the cold shoulder, says The Daily Gazette (Schenectady, NY) today. The plan was to remove 1 million gallons of water per day from the West Branch of the Delaware River in Wayne Country, PA. The water was to be used by Chesapeake Appalachian for fracking, which is hydraulic fracturing of rock for the development of natural gas wells. The plan has met with opposition and is scaled back with a vote on it now deferred.
