Gas Well Drilling and Water Quality

With the promise of increased Marcellus Shale gas well drilling in the region over the next several years, many people are concerned about the potential harm that could be caused to our local natural resources. The region appears posed to benefit economically from the energy rush, but a lot is on the line in an area defined by its vast tracts of unbroken forest, pristine mountain trout streams, and wilderness character.

On Tuesday, January 5, at 6:30 pm in the Cameron County Courthouse, the Bucktail Watershed Association will be hosting a special presentation regarding the potential threats to our most precious resource, water. Jim Clark of Penn State Cooperative Extension will be the featured speaker and will be presenting "Gas Well Drilling and Water Quality."

Following the 45-minute presentation there will be a 15-minute question and answer session.

After the presentation, the Bucktail Watershed Association will be sharing plans for the establishment of a volunteer water quality-monitoring network for portions of the Sinnemahoning Creek Watershed. Interested individuals will have a chance to sign up as volunteer monitors.

The Bucktail Watershed Association is a local nonprofit organization that works in cooperation with its partners to improve and protect the watershed communities within the Driftwood Branch and First Fork of the Sinnemahoning Creek. For more information regarding the upcoming meeting or involvement in the group, contact Jim Zoschg, Jr. at 814-486-0705.
