Re: Marcellus well testing
Gas company's are required to test any water wells within 2,000 feet of a proposed well, before drilling.
The reason is simple, they need a before drilling sample, just in case a land owner has anything happen to their well after drilling.........or decides to make up a bogus claim like the people of Dimick did.
The pre drilling sample is protecting the land owner, as well as the gas company, should anything happen to the water well.
The land owner just needs to be assured they will get a copy of the test results, so they have proof of their water quality before drilling.
Your never to old to learn something stupid
