Delaware Sierra Club joins call for fracking ban in the Delaware River Basin

Delaware environmental groups are joining others in the region in calling for a permanent ban on fracking in the Delaware River Basin.

The First State does not have any accessible shale, which makes fracking unlikely to happen here. But Stephanie Herron, the outreach coordinator for the Delaware Chapter of the Sierra Club, said she is concerned that if officials from the Delaware River Basin Commission lift a seven year ban on drilling in the basin, it could harm the drinking water quality in the First State.
