In 1930, my greatgrandparents purchased a beautiful farm in Bradford County, PA, in a little hamlet called French Azilum. In the summer, we spent time there, resting, breathing in the fresh air, enjoying the wild flowers, the bright stars and planets on a clear moonlit night, and swimming in the Susquehanna River. If gas drilling is allowed to continue, Bradford County and all of Pennsylvania will be forever changed, ruined beyond repair.

Rusting Gas Well Sites in Dimock, PA
Published on Dec 11, 2012
Taped 12-11-12. This is the gas pads/sites on Ken Ely's property in Dimock, Pa., Susquehanna County. These sites are producing gas and were installed in 2008 by Cabot Gas Co., and the brine tanks are rusting out and possibly leaking into the ground. They need to be examined by the DEP. The puddles alongside these brine tanks need to be tested. I have permission of the owner to visit these sites. You can hear the sounds of the heaters/production units and see some of the emissions from them and we could smell them. This is all the components you will find on every gas site.
Thank you, Vera Scroggins, for making this video. You go where many cannot often go because we are too far away.
New York, take note. This could be us in five years. Let's not let it happen.
