DIMCOCK TOWNSHIP, Pennsylvania - Battle lines are being drawn in a northeastern Pennsylvania village over natural gas drilling.
People who live in Dimock Township will no longer get fresh water delivered to their homes after a gas drilling company contaminated their drinking water.
November 30th was a day Ron and Jean Carter of Dimock Township knew was coming.
"It's just devastating. I don't know what we're going to do," said Jean Carter.
On Wednesday, Cabot Oil and Gas stopped supplying fresh water to homeowners who have been dealing with a well contamination problem for years.
"We had heard rumors that they were gonna shut the water off, but we really didn't believe it until we got the letter," said Ron Carter.
Some people, like Craig and Julie Sautner, have put crime scene tape along their property to highlight the problems of gas drilling.
The state Environmental Protection Agency says Cabot has met its obligations in a four-million dollar settlement and therefore can stop delivering water.
"I don't think very much of anyone who would do that to you. I mean, that doesn't speak very well for their company if they come and they do that," Jean Carter said.
"I think we reviewed that decision very carefully. It's really based on the facts in the law and nothing more and we stand by that decision," said Michael Krancer, Secretary for the Department of Environmental Protection.
With Cabot saying water deliveries will stop, many in Dimock Township don't know where to turn.
"I hope they reconsider it and be a little humane and treat us a little bit better," Jean Carter said.
On Friday, the Mayor of Binghamton, New York Offered to send fresh water to the town. However the township supervisors say they are not ready to sign a mutual aid agreement with the mayor.
