The Powder River Basin Resource Council has been instrumental in bringing attention to our area, Pavillion, WY, on gas drilling contamination to our land, water, and air. The organizer, Deb Thomas, is extremely knowledgable in all these matters and works incessently on our behalf. She helped us organize Pavillion Area Concerned Citizens, PACC. As a local group, and through Powder River Basin Resource Council,we have been in contact with the Department of Environmental Quality and other state and national organizations. As a landowner with 24 gas wells on our land, we have contaminated water, soil, and air. Powder River Basin Resource Council has helped immensely, working on our problems, calling attention of our plight. We do have the attention of state agencies. Deb Thomas and our local chairman, John Fenton, have been to the state legislature and also to Washington, D.C. to share our experiences and hope for help in solving our problems. They have appeared at the meetings of Wyoming Oil and Gas and offered rule changes to make drilling safer. We don't want to keep the gas company, Encana, from getting the natural gas, but we expect them to use safety measures at all times to ensure our water, soil, and air are not contaminated. We feel the grassroots organization of Powder River Basin Resource Council have helped us immensely in our plight.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

having our local water wells tested at least three times and an air monitor will be brought in to test for contaminates in the emissions of the gas wells. Our soils have also been tested.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the personal attention we feel we get. We are educated in the methods of working with governmental agencies.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful and knowledgable. Deb Thomas works endlessly for our cause.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

expand and pay the staff for their hard work. The group could hire more people to work across the state and help cash starved citizens with their problems. One family has no water at all and must carry water in to drink and for household use.

The Powder River Basin Resource Council does a huge job with very little money and a very dedicated staff. They work very hard to protect landowners and the environment in Wyoming, and also travel around the US to advise other groups. I admire the board and staff of this nonprofit, and they've made a big difference in Wyoming, and have helped educate me.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

totally dedicated to the organization, and people who would volunteer lots of hours, and the staff works tirelessly within a somewhat antagonistic climate within our state.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

meet the big corporations on their own level, and perhaps change the future of coal bed methane development, making it more sustainable.
