David Jones who owns and operates Kittatinny Canoes, supported Stone Energyís plans and suggested allowing greater withdrawals when the Lackawaxen is running higher. ďStore it when thereís more volume.
This project is the start of something. The world, the country, our area needs this industry. This is our future. It will save our area. Itíll protect it from development.
Letís not forget about private property. Itís our right to harvest it.
Lengthy studies are a delay tactic. Letís study every single industry that takes water from the basin. Why just gas drilling?
I depend on this water for my livelihood. New York City wastes 100 million gallons of water regularly.
This withdrawal represents an Olympic size swimming pool. Dockets are approved all the time. This is discrimination.Ē
