The undersigned representatives of environmental and legal organizations write to you concerning Range Resources’ recent application to the Township for a Conditional Use Permit for a wastewater “tank pad” on the Nancy Stewart property in Hickory. We understand that the Mt. Pleasant Board of Supervisors considered the application at a public hearing on November 22, but has not yet made a decision.

We strongly encourage you to deny the conditional use permit on the grounds of the terms of the Township’s zoning ordinance; potential changes in Pennsylvania’s oil and gas waste management permitting requirements; and the risk of exacerbating health and environmental problems. Following are our comments related to each of these concerns.
