Who’s Been Hurt By Fracking and Gas Development?
See the truth at “List of the Harmed” The oil and gas industry says that reports of well contamination and other impacts of drilling, fracking, wastewater, air contamination and health effects are exaggerated and undocumented. The Pennsylvania Alliance for Clean Water and Air continues to compile the “List of the Harmed” from news reports and contacts across the US. Now including 1,700 reports, each with the names of actual people harmed, their location, the responsible oil and gas operator, and the specific impact, the List also provides web links for further information and media stories.
Do you want North Carolina added to the reports on the “List of the Harmed” by allowing development of our state’s shallow, fractured shale formations? Fracking in NC would occur in areas where the population density is much higher than most regions where unconventional gas development has occurred. To see who is working on preventing fracking and gas development in NC, and to get involved, visit frackfreenc.org.

Join the growing movement to RE-THINK Chatham Park. HRA does not believe that the enormous 7120 acres between Pittsboro and Jordan Lake (and the Haw) should be re-zoned as requested by the developers. Please join us and the many groups and individuals working together as “Pittsboro Matters” for a better vision for our community. Ask the Pittsboro Town Board to consider all impacts to our area -including water resources and pollution – before making decisions that could impact us forever. For more information go to: PittsboroMatters.org

The 24th Learning Celebration September 22 – October 11 was a GREAT success! Since 1990, this amazing program has brought over 40,000 4th graders to the Haw River to learn about the river’s ecosystem and wonders, guided by dedicated volunteers. It is a great adventure that takes place for 3 weeks each fall. We couldn’t make this program possible for the children without the amazing volunteers who act as guides, cooks and logistic support – THANK YOU ALL! For information about the Thank You Party on November 3 please call HRA office at (919) 542-5790 or email email@example.com.
The Haw River Watch Project has updated its monitoring report. The newly-published Haw River Watch Monitoring Report 1994 – 2012 includes data collected during 2012 by our citizen water quality monitoring teams, that monitor quarterly throughout the Haw River watershed. Thanks to all of our dedicated teams who collect data about the health of our waterways.
