Take action today and urge the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) to postpone a vote on an application by XTO Energy (ExxonMobil Corp.) to withdraw 250,000 thousand gallons of water per day from the Oquaga Creek (NYS DEC-stocked trout stream) in Broome County, NY for gas drilling in Broome and Delaware counties. The DRBC will vote on XTO’s application this Wednesday and the public has been given only 10 days notice! The only hearing on the application will be held in New Jersey – far away from the communities and watersheds that will be affected.

Help protect the water we all share and the Delaware River watersheds against this unfair process!
