Having SPLP to do their own testing was “like handing the evidence over to the criminal,” said Chris “P.K.” Digiulio, a local resident and activist who lives on Marsh Creek Lake and has dedicated years to fighting the Mariner East pipeline.

Digiulio took samples from the site a few days after the DEP inspected the area, and now Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) Pennsylvania, the non-profit group where Digiulio works as an environmental chemist, is raising funds to independently test the clay-like material. The group needs about $8,000 for the test.
