    DEP's inspection records are very difficult to navigate. I've written a script which assembles Susquehanna, Lycoming, Potter, Wayne counties. The scrolling violations in the left sidebar are in Susquehanna County, from the 2nd quarter of 2010. To ask for other specific counties, please contact me. Techies, view details here.

    "Deep Impact" series at the Times-Tribune PDF Print E-mail
    Information on drilling
    Tuesday, 22 June 2010 20:06

    The Times Tribune has completed a six-month investigation of natural gas drilling in our area. Visit their Marcellus Shale section for links to the articles, drilling news, and more.

    The investigation found:

    • There have been hundreds of spills at natural gas well sites in the commonwealth over the last five years, the vast majority of which have never been publicized by the DEP.
    • The massive effort to exploit the shale has left an indelible mark on the landscape and communities in the state's Northern Tier and southwestern region, bearing both economic benefits and environmental costs. Experiences in those regions offer a preview of gas development in the seven counties of Northeast Pennsylvania, where a dozen Marcellus Shale operators hold leases to drill.
    • Despite industry claims that it discloses all of the chemicals it uses in the gas extraction process, DEP documents from a series of spills in Susquehanna County show that the industry's disclosure is incomplete and insufficient for determining contamination in soil and water.
    • A growing chorus of scientists is arguing that not enough is known about the effect widespread gas drilling will have on water supplies, air quality and human health to justify the intensive development of the resource already taking place.

    How to use eMapPA PDF Print E-mail
    Information on drilling
    Wednesday, 16 June 2010 19:13

    All information on wells, permits, etc. is posted on Pennsylvania's eMapPA system. Unfortunately, it is VERY difficult to use. Here are some directions--first for eFACTS (also works for eNOTICE emails), then for using the system directly.

    You have until Monday, June 29th to comment on a list of exemptions from air quality permits that the Department of Environmental Protection is re-proposing. This includes some types of oil and gas exploration and production operations. View the list here. Note: this is the link provided by DEP. It doesn't look like it's been updated since 2003???
