Robert Burns, shareholder in Buchanan's Energy section, was quoted in Law360's article, "Pa. Frack Spill Ruling Could Dent DEP's Negotiating Power." He comments about the ruling's potential to encourage DEP to focus more on cleanups.

I think it's really something that restores a bit of the purpose of the Clean Streams Law. Some cleanups take time, especially with a groundwater situation. Most want these things to be evaluated via science, and this [decision] takes the thumb off the scales, as far as that goes.
