North Central Texas Communities Alliance (NCTCA)  is a broad-based coalition of individuals, organizations, and communities throughout the  Barnett Shale area working on local, state, and national levels for positive solutions to the problems related to natural gas drilling and pipelines.To facilitate our goals, we strive to Communicate, Educate and then to Mobilize citizens to action in North Texas and their own unique communities.It is our belief that a MORATORIUM ON ALL NEW PERMITS (for gas wells, pipelines, compresssors) is required in order to have time to sort through the maze of complex issues regarding our health, safety,environment and quality of life.
