Stephanie Hallowich in National Geographic Speaks out About the Dangers of Gas Drilling in PA


Stephanie Hallowich has had one of the worst experiences with natural gas drilling in PA and she has also been one of the loudest voices, speaking out for her family and others in the same situations. Her story was picked up by National Geographic and can be found at the below link.

She had this to say about it:

Our story went on National Geographic today.  It will take awhile to get through.  I needed a few tissues to get through it.  Please feel free to forward it to as many people as possible!

I was fortunate enough to meet Stephanie earlier this year while visiting and touring Ron Gulla’s farm in Washington County, PA. We stopped by Stephanie’s home and I was horrified by the smell first off and the close proximity of  dehydrator tanks and a compression station, not to mention the wells…all within a 100 yards or less of her home. I couldn’t imagine being her family or having children trying to play in their backyard near this industry. You can find out more about Stephanie and her family at the above article from National Geographic or check out Faces of Frackland.

THANK YOU STEPHANIE!
