The League of Women Voters of Susquehanna County will host two upcoming events as part of its educational series on Marcellus Shale.
A Friday event entitled Pipeline Matters will address right-of-way agreements, lease negotiation questions, landowner options and pipeline impact, according to a news release from the group. A May 7 program, Environmental Impact, will focus on issues relating to Marcellus Shale production and effects on surface water and groundwater. Experts will speak during each program.
Both events will take place from 7 to 9:30 p.m. in the Montrose Area High School auditorium.

There are so many different aspects of the gas and oil industry. At first we worried about the visual issues surrounding the gas drilling. Later we realized that our water and air qualities were at stake and that issue still takes a precedence today. As the production of natural gas progresses in this area we will see some new stages erupting this summer and with them new concerns. Things we have not yet considered because we are still investing all our time and energy into the water battle and some things that we will not know about until they start to happen. The nature of this industry seems to be in secrecy and quick movements, like a tiger, (isn’t that Exxon’s logo?) that make it difficult to see what’s coming head on, like a run away truck on a dark, rainy night.
One thing that has come up in the last months for me has been the pipeline infrastructure. Did we know drilling for gas entailed pipelines? Sure we did, but I at least did not consider the full effect of this single aspect of natural gas drilling. Here are some links to informative sites and articles that are discussing this topic.
The above link offers some good explanations of pipelines, how and what they are used for and what sort of effects they can have on PA forests.
The fifth story down this page gives some idea as to when this stage may begin and what we might see, at least for Potter County, PA.
