During an interview yesterday with WHYY in Philadelphia, EPA Administrator Jackson said that she had called earlier Governor Corbett to discuss apparently the DEP directive to its inspectors not to issue notices of violation at Marcellus Drilling sites without the approval of DEP Secretary Krancer.
She said yesterday that she had not received a call back and did not sound pleased.
Hopefully by now she has received a call back from the Governor.
DEP is the delegated agency for issuing Clean Air Act permits, Clean Water Act permits, Safe Drinking Water Act matters and for enforcing the permit requirements. Maintaining a working relationship between DEP and EPA is important for everyone.
Communication is important, to say hopefully the obvious.
