Who We Are
BCMAC is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization registered with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. BCMAC’s mission statement is “The Beaver County Marcellus Awareness Community seeks to protect the residents of Southwestern Pennsylvania, with emphasis on those in Beaver County, by informing them about the health, safety, environmental and economic impacts of fracking infrastructure, including the petrochemical buildout; and by supporting sustainable alternatives to carbon-based energy sources and economic development strategies in Beaver County.”
Since 2011, BCMAC has carried out its mission. In the early days our emphasis was about protecting our drinking water in the Ambridge Reservoir, and on the health and climate impacts of unconventional fracking, a process that was rapidly growing. With the development of the Shell ethane cracker plant, our attention has shifted to that process and all its related land, water, and air pollution issues. Eyes On Shell (EOS) is an ongoing project of BCMAC. The EOS Watchdog Team involves community residents who observe, record and report petrochemical pollution incidents.
Please note this is a one-year part-time, contract position with continuance contingent on funding.
