EPA gets water to Dimock—finally


January 25, 2012

DIMOCK, PA — A number of residents from our area, including Narrowsburg, NY’s Brandi Merolla, who snapped this photograph, visited Dimock on January 20 to see a tanker truck sent by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) deliver water to families on Carter Road. Residents on the road have complained that the water in their wells is still tainted by the natural gas drilling operations of Cabot Oil & Gas, but the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) recently ruled that Cabot could cease making replacement water deliveries to them.
