PRESTON TOWNSHIP -- The fight to allow fracking in Wayne County has been shot down.

A federal judge dismissed a lawsuit this week that sought to have a natural gas well pad on hunting club land in northern Wayne County.

The Delaware River Basin Commission, which regulates drilling in the area, does not have regulations in place for fracking like the rest of the state, essentially putting a moratorium on drilling on its land.

In dismissing the suit, the judge recognized the agency's control over fracking in that area.

    Frack this schist ! Just another ploy to keep us poor folk from tapping into our own resources to secure Trump-like royalties. And to think, Gov Perry as Energy head, with “all clear to sue the EPA” Pruitt in charge, leading the feds into helping all their billionaire buddies, I finally couldda had me a share. but no; back to eatin raman n spuds.
