Lawsuit Filed against Painted Post Bulk Water Sales for Gas Drilling

The Corning Leader reported Friday on a lawsuit challenging the plans of the Village of Painted Post to engage in bulk water sales for gas drilling in Pennsylvania. The suit was filed in Steuben County Supreme Court in Bath by the Sierra Club, the Coalition to Protect New York, People for a Healthy Environment and five individual petitioners against the Village of Painted Post, Painted Post Development LLC, SWEPI and the Wellsboro & Corning Railroad on June 25, 2012. See Lawsuit Filed Against PP Bulk Water Sale Project by Derrick Ek. I am working with attorney Richard J. Lippes from Buffalo to represent the petitioners.

The suit alleges that the Village should have conducted a full environmental review of the impacts of the proposed water sales and the proposed rail-loading facility for the water shipments before signing a bulk water sale agreement and entering into a lease of Village land for the rail-loading facility.

The papers filed in the case are posted on my law office website.
