Gas Drilling Raises Questions About Water Safety

Had this article sent to me and I thought I would share it with my readers. It was first printed in the July 22 front page of the Albany Times Union. This is an investigatory article on gas drilling in the Marcellus Shale in New York State. The article looks at some of the water quality issues surrounding the deep drilling technique and whether the NYS regulatory authorities have prepared for the actual techniques that the investigation found would be used. Many of these wells have already been drilled in Pennsylvania.
