Ask DRBC to hold Independent hearings on PennEast 
Tell the Delaware River Basin Commission You Want Them To Hold 7 Independent Hearings to Give the Public a Fair Chance to Be Heard.
Sign our Petition today and join your voice with thousands of others to defend our friends and neighbors in our watershed:  
People facing the cuts of the PennEast pipeline across their communities, properties and environments need your signature on a petition calling for the Delaware River Basin Commission to hold 7 hearings, separate from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, across the length of the 114 mile pipeline. 
7 DRBC hearings means a hearing every 10 to 20 miles of pipeline. This means greater accessibility and less travel time for those that will be affected. It means less cars on the road and less fossil fuels burned. 
7 DRBC hearings means less chance of time running out and people being turned away without ever getting the chance to speak, as happened at the limited set of scoping hearings FERC held. 
From a substantive and procedural perspective 7 DRBC-only hearings are more valuable to the decision makers at DRBC and to the public. 
Without 7 separate DRBC hearings along the length of the proposed pipeline route, the communities most directly affected by PennEast will likely be relegated to a mere 2 to 3 minutes in just a few hearings scheduled at distant locations.  The last time FERC held hearings, people were turned away without the opportunity to testify because so few hearings and so little time was granted.
