About Us

POW

Protecting Our Waters is a Philadelphia-based grassroots alliance committed to protecting the Delaware River Basin, the state of Pennsylvania, and our region from unconventional gas drilling and other threats to our drinking water, environment, and public health.

Through extended and serious study, Protecting Our Waters has learned that unconventional gas drilling negatively impacts water, air, human health, the economy, and community well-being. Unfortunately, current state and federal regulations are wholly inadequate to prevent environmental destruction by this heavily polluting industry and protect the inhabitants. POW has succeeded in a number of local and regional campaigns to protect our waters, but new activists are constantly needed to confront the momentum of these huge multinational corporations.
