Shale gas production near schools
Is a one mile setback enough?
addition of a third drilling pad close to Fort Cherry Junior-Senior
High School has more parents in SW Pennsylvania asking questions

half the pipelines in Pennsylvania were at least 45 years old
with the majority of US pipelines installed before 1970. Corrosion
accounted for 28% of serious pipeline accidents.
This Marcellus Shale gas drilling
web site provides photos and information about the Marcellus Shale gas play
and unconventional gas well development. You'll find photos of gas drilling
