Tell Attorney General Shapiro to Investigate the DEP

New information from a team of investigative journalists at Public Herald shows Department of Environmental Protection has systematically handled fracking-related complaints with misconduct.
Investigators fought with DEP for three years to obtain information on fracking-related complaints. What they uncovered is jarring. DEP has received over 9,400 complaints related to gas and oil impact. Within this data, the Public Herald alleges to have identified at least 177 water contamination investigations wherein DEP committed one or more of three types of official misconduct: malfeasance, misfeasance, and negligence.
Pursuing this potential criminal activity is the responsibility of the Office of the Attorney General.

Engage in Pipeline and Infrastructure Fights
In recent weeks, the Atlantic Sunrise, Rover, and Northern Access Pipelines were approved by FERC and the Mariner East II natural gas liquid line and the PennEast pipeline received water permits from the PA DEP. Across the state, communities are fighting cracker plants, natural gas power plants, and other dirty energy infrastructure. Encampments are being established by communities fighting the Atlantic Sunrise and Mariner East II pipelines.
