State representative Phylis Mundy from Luzerne County issued a press release calling for additional funding for the DEP. Representative Mundy cites statistics showing that DEP funding is down over 40% in the last several years. This decrease in funding coincided with the natural gas drilling boom. As a result Representative Mundy notes that funds and resources for water testing at or near gas well sites are severely lacking. In fact, according to the representative, over 80% of wells in the State go untested due to lack of resources. More funding for DEP hiring and more personnel is sorely needed.
