Fracking and the Demise of Riverdale Mobile Home Park
Tuesday, September 18, 2012 | 3 years ago
Near the town of Jersey Shore, Pa., former residents of the Riverdale Mobile Home Park can be found camping at the edge of Route 220, holding signs that read "Save Riverdale!" and "No Fracking!"
In February, they learned that Richard Leonard, who owns the Riverdale land, had sold it to Aqua America, which supplies fracking companies with water. Residents were ordered to vacate the park by the end of May. Some had lived there for more than 30 years.
