But no one should be under the impression that it will eliminate the problem. The Flint crisis is both unique and typical. B...

By Mike Spille Lambertville, New Jersey & Bridge to New Hope, Pennsylvania In August, 2014, a consortium of 6 companies including utility giants Houston-based Spectra Energies, UGI Energy Services, Atlanta-based AGL Resources, Long Island-based Public Service Enterprise Group, South Jersey Industries (SJI Midstream), and New Jersey Resources Pipeline Company, operating as the PennEast Pipeline Company, LLC, announced their plans to build a 36-inch, three-foot diameter pipeline to transport fracked gas from the Marcellus Shale region in Pennsylvania into New Jersey.

Townships and communities along the route immediately joined forces in protest and have stepped up their efforts ever since. But until last month, one ...

Community Agriculture Alliance: Fluid discussions at a round table 18.8.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Water in the West has been a complicated subject for hundreds of years. Every year, a different amount of snowmelt flows downstream from the high country, where most of the water in the Southwest originates. Ancestral cultures of hunting and gathering knew that water, or the lack of it, made for better or worse living. They moved seasonally and abandoned large parts of the West during prolonged droughts. European settlers, farmers and ranchers needed irrigation water for their agricultural culture. Some raised sheep, some cattle, and cultures and uses sometimes clashed. In the American West, eventually, it all comes back to water. Today’s culture is different. Humans still hunt and gather, but more for recreation than need. We farm and ranch, but buy and sell into a wider market. We also use water to generate electrical power, irrigate lawns and even make snow. After we who live upstream use some water, the rivers flow into Utah, Arizona, California and Mexico, where they use water, too. People differ in ...
