The Responsible Drilling Alliance is planning a series of regional membership meetings; the kick off scheduled for the southern tier this Tuesday November 13th in Montgomery, PA, which is in Lycoming County adjacent to Williamsport, PA.
The RDA Board of Directors and Working Group will bring you up to date on our activities, and more importantly, listen to your concerns and ideas. Our goal is to build connection and community, and to give you a greater voice in creating the platform on which the RDA mission and message can evolve, based on the needs and opinions of RDA members.
Please plan to come network with us and to enjoy light snacks. The Mulligan’s bar will be open during the meeting, and the full dinner menu available afterward. We expect the meeting to last about an hour.
We hope to see you Tuesday night at Mulligan’s Restaurant on the White Deer Golf Course, 352 Allenwood Camp Lane, Montgomery PA 17752. We would appreciate your RSVP via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
RDA Presents: The Life We Loved Is Gone by Lauren Deering
Since the gas industry began developing near our home…
1. No longer peaceful outdoors, 2. Awakened in the middle of the night by truck back-up alarms, 3. Light pollution, 4. Uncertainty about leaving the mountain and arriving on time for work and appointments, 5. Using Truman Run Road now requires extra gas and time to wait, 6. Extra gas when alternate route has to be used due to gas truck problems, 7. Devalued real estate, 8.Air Pollution, 9. Noise pollution, 10. Subsurface and surface, 11. Water contamination, 12. Creek pollution, 13. Extra wear and tear on vehicles due to large trucks and poor road conditions, 14. Protected species such as eagles no longer being seen, 15. Migratory birds no longer being seen, 16. We no longer walk our dog on township roads due to trucks and spillage of liquids, 17. The life we wanted is gone.
