The agreement for the municipal authority to sell the Hunt Marcellus Operating Company up to 157,000 gallons of water per day was put on hold last month by the Department of Environmental Protection [DEP].
"We are in trouble with DEP," Gapinski said. "We have outstanding VOCs [Violations of Compliance]. We have a control panel that should be installed at Silver Creek right now."

"I checked into all the complaints and I have copies of all the zoning permits from Russ Braun-- I did talk to the assessment office and they are paying taxes on one of those, they plan to check out the other building and see if there are taxes on that one," said supervisor Donna Kosick.
