The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission reported this morning that they are now investigating over a dozen different drilling mud spills in at least a dozen different freshwater creeks in the Connoquenessing Township area of Butler County. More details below. Kim McEvoy, whose water first turned dark gray in January 2011, said this morning after living with contaminated water for over a year, “The whole ecosystem is destroyed. We are trying to move out this month. I love it here. We don’t want to move.” A photo of the McEvoys’ home with snow coming down on February 4th, 2012, with lovely evergreen trees and an American flag flying, is below. As more and more Pennsylvania families become environmental refugees due to heavy gas drilling, what can ordinary people do?
