We are a group of concerned citizens and business owners who have joined together to stop a proposed liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) industrial storage facility and a methane expansion facility, with plans to store methane, propane, and butane in unlined, depleted salt caverns that were never engineered to store anything, on the shores of Seneca Lake.  These projects present innumerable risks to our safety, our water , way of life, and our livelihoods. Please join us!

Crestwood, a Houston energy company, is trying to industrialize Seneca Lake and the Finger Lakes by proposing a massive project to store liquefied petroleum gases in unlined salt caverns under Seneca Lake.  This project presents geological problems, can affect Seneca Lake water quality, presents health risks, is a threat to our winery and tourist economy, as well as being an infrastructure project that could negatively impact climate change.

There are a lot of resources on this website. So look around.  Some suggestions:

  • Watch the January 2015 update on the Donate page
  • Watch portions of the Seneca in the Balance event on the Events page.  You can see noted professionals and business owners in the field of geology, health, tourism, agriculture, winery, biology and politics examine the problems of this project.
  •  For the latest. go to our Facebook page

We are now preparing for a DEC Issues Conference, Feb. 12, 2015.

While Earthjustice is providing pro-bono legal work, we will be utilizing several expert witnesses.  Expert witnesses are expensive, and the studies they perform are expensive.  You can watch a video with an update on this on our donate page.

Please consider donating to support our work.  You can donate online or you can send us a check.  Information is on the donate page

The Kickstarter campaign for 'Fracking Justice' has two weeks left.

That seems like a lot of time. But if you are considering pre-ordering a book, e-book, audiobook or T-shirt, well, think about it soon, please!

Here's a new Captain's Blog entry about where 'Fracking Justice' is in the publishing process, the audio book - as well as what I have in store for author Stephen King when he reads my next novel:
