ACTION ALERT!

wellleakEDWIN is the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Oil & Gas Well 24/7 online Database.
Citizens desiring 24/7 remote access to DCNR's online oil and gas well database may subscribe to EDWIN.
The initial subscription fee is $5,000, which covers the software license and initial training on use of the system. An annual maintenance fee of $500 covers technical support and troubleshooting, geologic consultations, and software upgrades and maintenance during the subscription year.

Pennsylvania taxpayers desiring 24/7 access to DCNR's online O&G well database are required to pay $5500.00.  https://edwin.dcnr.pa.gov/

Oil and gas well records should be available to all Pennsylvania's citizens, not just a select few citizens with the ability to pay DCNR's exorbitant charges.

Please sign the petition to demand DCNR stop charging citizens $5,500.00 to access the EDWIN database here.

How does a politician say no to that? All too easily in Pennsylvania, it turns out, where Nora is already a seasoned activist who fought the Atlantic Sunrise pipeline as a member of Lancaster Against Pipelines. The pipeline got built with Harrisburg’s blessing despite massive public opposition. It’s a story that has been repeated so frequently that the Better Path Coalition decided it was time to remind state elected officials that preserving a healthy environment isn’t just something they should be doing to be responsive to constituents’ needs; it’s a constitutional obligation.

Save The Allegheny is a regional environmental and citizen advocacy organization that formed in response to recent threats posed to the Allegheny River, clean drinking water, air quality, endangered species, wildlife and all of our natural resources.   This is a cause to restore our rights.

Article I, Section 27 of the Pennsylvania Constitution states...

"The people have a right to clean air, pure water, and to the preservation of the natural, scenic, historic and esthetic values of the environment. Pennsylvania’s public natural resources are the common property of all the people, including generations yet to come. As trustee of these resources, the Commonwealth shall conserve and maintain them for the benefit of all the people."
