Well Walk Tour In Potter County Draws Two Dozen

From Potter County Today


Another in a series of public land gas well walks was held Sunday on state game lands in northwestern Potter County. Local citizens who have been monitoring the drilling described the changes they have witnessed and discussed their concerns with about two dozen people attending.  There are six well pads constructed in the area, two of which have been truckpasses3drilled. Each pad, which covers five to nine acres, will have between two and six horizontal wells. Some roads have been widened and reinforced and new roads have been constructed to support heavy traffic and make space for pipelines. Above, Bob Volkmar, retired college science professor and active Trout Unlimited member, discusses the gas wells with some of the attendees.  At right, tour host Melissa Troutman pauses as a water tanker passes during the tour.
