Latest Natural Gas Newsletter Available On County Website

Potter County Today


Potter County has a wealth of natural gas underground in the Marcellus Shale, but some areas of Pennsylvania have more.

Copies of the newsletter can be read — and printed — from the county’s website, available here (click on the Marcellus Shale/Natural Gas tab). Past editions of Monthly Roundup are also available on the website. Copies of the November/December edition can also be obtained over the counter at the commissioners’ administrative office in the Gunzburger Building — second door on the left inside the Main Street entrance.
