MarcellusAttend a documentary at the University of Pittsburgh Law School on Thursday, March 18 at 6:30, The Barco Building, 3600 Forbes Avenue on the issues and problems surrounding the drilling in the Marcellus Shale. For those of you who haven't been following the gas well situation in our local area, the drilling in the Marcellus Shale has brought up complex issues concerning the environment, water safety, and land-use rights. Though the safety of the drilling process and the hydrofracturing chemicals used to extract the gas have not been fully examined, thousands of wells have been drilled and thousands more are slated, many of them in right here in the South Hills.

Along with the noise and air pollution caused by the drilling itself, there are significant water usage and waste water disposal issues. There have been numerous, unpublicized spills of highly toxic waste water and irreparable damage to pristine lands. Governor Rendell intends to lease even more public forest land to gas companies. Due to concerns about the water usage and hydrofracturing chemicals, the state legislature in New York has placed a moratorium on drilling in order to better investigate the environmental impact, while the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection continues to issue permits to gas drilling companies entering the state in the hunt for a share of profits expected to be in the trillions.

Come to the University of Pittsburgh Law School on Thursday, March 18 at 6:30, The Barco Building and find out more about this important issue before a well or compressor station shows up next door to you.
