Action Alert!

Public Comments Needed!

Save The Allegheny is a regional environmental and citizen advocacy organization that formed in response to the lack of transparency by Coudersport Area Municipal Authority (CAMA) regarding their partnership with Epiphany Environmental to create a frac wastewater treatment plant to work in conjunction and alongside our local sewage treatment plant. CAMA chose to not include the public in this community transforming project. This is a cause to restore our rights.

Of special concern is the proximity of the frac wastewater treatment facility to the Coudersport Area Elementary School, downwind one mile from leased site.

Coudersport Area Municipal Authority (CAMA) recently leased land to Epiphany Allegheny LLC, a company planning to build a frack waste treatment plant along the Allegheny River in Coudersport, PA

Ephiphany Allegheny LLC applied to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for an Air Quility exemption & facility related permits which are awaiting approvial.  If approved, Epiphany’s Centralized Waste Treatment facility would be the first of its kind in Pennsylvania.  As such, this exemption could potentially compromise the air quality and the health of the citizens of Coudersport since no information is available with regard to the impacts on the environment and public health.

camaRecently Coudersport Area Municipal Authority (CAMA) board members leased land to Epiphany, the company planning to chemically treat and distill frack wastewater from the region's unconventional shale wells. 

When myself and other residents learned about CAMA's  plans, we began releasing helium balloons from the site.  The balloons drifted over the Borough of Coudersport & the Coudersport Elementary School. 

Epiphany has since applied to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) for an Air Quality Exemption Permit.  This could potentially have a detrimental effect on the air quality over Coudersport, and the Coudersport Elementary School.

We would like to purchase an "Air Quality Egg " so we can measure the levels of carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in the air surrounding to distillery. The Air Quality Egg cost $280.00.  Please click here to help support our efforts to keep our air clean.

One Speck Air Monitor has been purchased, and is being used to monitor the air in various locations throughout Coudersport.  Check out our Facebook page to see the current readings and locations.
