Marcellus Shale Gas Campaign

The West Virginia Chapter has initiated a campaign to protect our waters and communities from the hydro-fracking process, and other environmental abuses, associated with drilling for gas in the Marcellus Shale rock formations of the Appalachian Mountains.  You can read more at the http://marcellus-wv.com  website.

Our Marcellus Gas Campaign is chaired by David Sturm (see Contact Us webpage).

WV Sierra Club, through its Marcellus Shale Gas campaign (http://marcellus-wv.com), is committed to ensuring that natural gas extraction is effectively regulated and that the industry employs the safest and most environmentally sound techniques. We also are fighting to keep the oil and gas industry out of areas where drilling and production poses unacceptable risks. As the Legislature approaches, we'll be bringing you up to date on proposed legislation and what you can do to help.
