"People Don't Do What You Expect, They Do What You Inspect"
"EPA: News Releases by Date": 1/27/2010 -
EPA Announces "Eyes on Drilling" Tipline.Contact - David Sternberg (215) 814-5548, firstname.lastname@example.org
1-877-919-4EPA (toll free)
The EPA Announces a new tool for citizens who are concerned about suspicious activity by oil and gas drilling groups; to report illegal or unpermitted activities related to oil and gas drilling. This is for non-emergency suspicious activity.
Citizens are being asked to report illegal dumping and/or unauthorized spreading of well drilling fluids, wastes or other suspicious activity.
Keep in mind the agency responding to your tip is funded by tax dollars. If you have documented activity of practices it is much easier for agencies to open a case, and eventually prosecute illegal and unpermitted activities, or activities that violate the Clean Water Act, and Clean Air Act. Please do not waste tax dollars by calling in a tip only because you are unhappy with drilling activity.
Thank you for all you do, thank you for being a concerned citizen, thank you for the 'one things' you all do!
